America’s premier theologian

Jonathan Edwards was the only son of Timothy Edwards, a minister, and Esther Stoddard, the daughter of a respected minister from Massachusetts. At 13, Edwards entered Yale College where he studied natural sciences along with theology and the humanities—graduating in 1720 as valedictorian. While at Yale, he began writing extensively on science—even drawing up a plan for a magnum opus on “natural philosophy” that was never completed. After graduation, he preached in a Presbyterian church as their “pulpit supply,” but not their pastor, while also teaching at Yale College.

In 1720, he began to record his famous “Resolutions” and felt overwhelmed by the grace of God, something he previously feared and hated. By 1727, he was ordained minister of the church at Northampton where his grandfather also pastored. In the same year, he married Sarah Pierpont, who also hailed from a family of ministers. Though his early years in Northampton were difficult, revival broke out in the congregation and began to spread throughout New England, becoming what we now call the first Great Awakening. Though criticized by traditional and Enlightenment-minded clergy, Edwards vigorously defended the revival from its critics, penning A Faithful Narrative of the Surprising Work of God to document the events first hand and to counter Old Light theologians who scoffed at the revival as “mere enthusiasm.”

Although a sought-after speaker throughout the region and abroad, Edwards was never very popular in his own church, and after withholding communion from erring members of his congregation, he was removed from the pulpit at Northampton. He took up the pastorate of a church in Stockbridge before replacing Aaron Burr Sr. as the president of the College of New Jersey (Princeton University). Jonathan Edwards died on March 22, 1758 from complications from a smallpox inoculation.

Edwards, the writer

Edwards’ writing spans a variety of topics, including theology and history, as well as natural and theoretical philosophy. Many of his writings came in the form of sermons, the most famous of which is “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God”—an exposition on the fate of unrepentant humanity.

He also wrote penetrating theological treatises, such as Freedom of the Will, The Great Christian Doctrine of Original Sin Defended, and Religious Affections—each of which provided forceful defenses of God’s activity in the world and of traditional Reformed doctrine.

Arguably his most intellectually creative work, The End for Which God Created the World, is a fascinating exposition that John Piper describes as “a vision of God” that “took me captive thirty years ago and has put its stamp on every part of my life and ministry.” Edwards also edited the diary of influential Native American missionary David Brainerd, helping to ensure its preservation.

With Logos, Edwards’ works are completely searchable. Whether you’re looking for every occurrence of the word “hell” in “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” or “grace” in Religious Affections, Logos finds exactly what you are looking for. And whenever you perform a search in the Passage Guide or Sermon Starter Guide, Edwards’ relevant sermons are pulled into your results, allowing you to glean the most important material for your study. Edwards’ writings are now in a format that will benefit students, pastors, and scholars alike in both research and writing.

Lewis’ influential legacy

C.S. Lewis has had an incalculable influence on Christianity in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. John Piper, in a lecture on the impact of Lewis in his own life, says, “Lewis gave me, and continues to give me, an intense sense of the astonishing ‘realness’ of things. He had the ability to see and feel what most of us see and do not see.” Commenting on Lewis’ death in 1963, J.R.R. Tolkien remarked, “So far I have felt the normal feelings of a man of my age—like an old tree that is losing all its leaves one by one: this feels like an axe-blow near the roots.”

Lewis was born to Irish parents on November 29, 1898. His early childhood obsession with fairy tales would go on to influence his most famous work, The Chronicles of Narnia. During his adolescence, Lewis rejected the idea of God as silly and without proof. Entering Oxford University in 1916, Lewis left the following year to serve as a soldier in World War I. He was injured soon after and was sent back to England where he resumed his studies at Oxford. After graduation, he joined the faculty of English literature at Oxford, where he befriended the unknown Anglo-Saxon scholar J.R.R. Tolkien.

His struggle with Christianity would come to a head in 1931 when, after a discussion with his friends Tolkien and Hugo Dyson, Lewis accepted the Christian faith after a visit to the zoo. From that point on, Lewis spent the rest of his life discussing and defending Christianity from modern ideas such as relativism and materialism. Near the end of his life, he penned his most enduring work, The Chronicles of Narnia, a children’s tale about the land of Narnia and its protector, the lion Aslan. He went on to marry Joy Gresham, who passed away in 1960. Lewis followed her in death on November 22, 1963, the same day as the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Add classic, enduring works to your library

This collection contains a variety of works from Lewis’ long writing career. His Christian works provide critiques of secular ideas, like materialism, as well as defenses of Christian doctrine, like the actuality of miracles. Mere Christianity, one of his most popular works, presents two of Lewis’ influential apologetic arguments for Christianity: the “trilemma” argument and the argument from universal morality. The Screwtape Letters is written from the perspective of a lead demon teaching his nephew how to lead humans to hell. And Miracles is Lewis’ argument for the presence of supernatural intervention in the natural world.

This collection also includes his three-volume science-fiction epic, The Space Trilogy, which follows the escapades of Dr. Ransom as he travels the solar system fighting the forces of evil. Although more popularly known for his fiction and Christian nonfiction writings, Lewis published many works of literary criticism on works by medieval poets, Paradise Lost, Norse mythology, and more, which are featured here.

Lewis’ collected letters are considered a goldmine of information regarding the progression of his thought during his lifetime. With the Logos edition of his letters, you’ll be able to perform searches based on the recipient of the letter and the date it was written. For instance, if you wanted to read every letter written to Tolkien during the 1950s, simply input these parameters and Logos retrieves all of Lewis’ relevant letters. For the Lewis scholar or enthusiast, Logos makes Lewis’ works more accessible than ever.

Save 50% on Barth’s Church Dogmatics!

barths-church-dogmaticsThis month only, you can save 50% on an essential theology collection: Barth’s Church Dogmatics.

Through December, you can add this 31-volume collection to your Logos library at an incredible discount.

Think deeply with this renowned theologian

Karl Barth is considered one of the most important Christian thinkers of the modern era. Described by Pope Pius XII as the most important theologian since Thomas Aquinas, Barth helped found the Confessing Church, and his thinking formed the theological framework for the Barmen Declaration. He taught in Germany, where he opposed the Nazi regime. In 1935, when he refused to take the oath of allegiance to Adolf Hitler, he was retired from his position at the University of Bonn and deported to Switzerland. There he continued to write and develop his theology.

The Church Dogmatics are the pinnacle of Barth’s theological thought. Beginning with his unique doctrine of the Word of God, he goes on to revitalize central doctrines of the Christian faith, including the doctrine of creation, Christology, and redemption. In his analysis of Christian teaching, he interacts with biblical texts and important teachers throughout the church’s history. The Church Dogmatics runs to over six million words in 14 volumes in its print edition.

Discover valuable theological truths

In the Logos format, you can access the entire contents of the Church Dogmatics from your computer or mobile device. No more sifting through paperback or hardcover copies to find what Barth wrote on any given subject. In Logos, you can search the entirety of the Church Dogmatics to find out what Barth had to say concerning specific subjects, such as the incarnation:

If Jesus Christ is not also true man, how can the true God have condescended to us in Him? How does He really take our place as the Son and in the power of God? How does He do for us what only God can do for us in our place?

Unlike the 14-volume print edition, the Logos edition of the Church Dogmatics contains translations of every Greek and Latin phrase. This edition is perfect for the student or pastor who want to read through the Church Dogmatics but does not have a working knowledge of the ancient languages. The researcher or academic, using Logos 6′s tools, can do powerful searches for various words and topics found in Barth’s magnum opus.

Start your journey today

With six million words in the Church Dogmatics, now’s the time to start. Through December, you can get this entire collection for 50% off.
