Incredible Resource: the Jonathan Edwards Center

Have you ever visited this blog? It’s the Jonathan Edwards Center blog, located in the Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale University. The Center is a tremendous resource for scholars, pastors, and all who are interested in some way in Jonathan Edwards.

Currently, the Center is beta-testing its new site, which features all of the works of Edwards online. It sounds a little grandiose, but it’s actually true. If you are interested in looking into these resources, check out the following announcement. Even if you’re not interested in being a beta-tester, I would encourage you to look over the Center’s online offerings, both for personal benefit and the benefit of your ministry.

The announcement:
