    Mr. Day, Have you read Jonathan Edwards, “a faithful account of…” an account of the awakening. I haven’t. Sounds really good especially if it was an influence for Wesley as stated on the lecture.

    A faithful Narrative you mean? That and Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God

    Sinners in the hands is a sermon. He says a faithful narrative is a book. Does he mention the aims or preparation or effects of sermons. I get the feeling something is missing??? 13 hours. For him I think it was that in prayer for Seymour. Years of preparation. What do you think is the “big take away” from the book? Ok correction it’s an essay. I’ll read it. 13 hours of study a day? No wonder our own awakening is with held.

      The reviews say “universal steps.” I’ll have to read it and get back to you? maybe on a thread for that ‘soteriology’
