Why God Created the World
A Jonathan Edwards Adaption
By Ben Stevens

What People Are Saying

"Ben Stevens is to be thanked for this herculean effort. This is arguably Edwards's most influential text among contemporary Christians, yet few have the patience and ability to wade through the original."
—Dr. Douglas A. Sweeney, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"It's not every day that a book about the meaning of everything is written. It's also not every day that you find a readable, understandable, and downright fun guide to such a momentous text. Why God Created the World by Ben Stevens is just such a book. It's brainy but eminently accessible, and the prose crackles with electric interest and arresting analogies. I know it will help many hungry Christians to dig into the meat of Edwards's original text, which is quite simply one of the most important books ever written."
—Dr. Owen Strachan, Assistant professor of Christian theology and church history, Boyce College

"The moment 'why' passes our lips, we are doing theology.  With the mind of a scholar and the heart of a pastor, Ben Stevens directs the voice of Jonathan Edwards to this all important question. Substantive and clear, this book provides concepts with which to articulate an intelligent answer."
—Chris Castaldo, Director of the ministry of gospel renewal, Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College; author of Holy Ground: Walking with Jesus as a Former Catholic
