A Horrible, Terrible, Wonderful Sermon


“Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,” by Jonathan Edwards, is considered the most famous sermon ever preached in American history. Jonathan Edwards delivered this message on July 8, 1741 in Enfield, Connecticut. Many who heard it trembled and cried out for mercy. Others fainted. Five hundred people were converted that day.

I just listened to an excellent, updated version of this sermon by Max McLean, and was very thankful to be saved after hearing this “Fire and Brimstone” message. I am now even more committed to sharing the Gospel with “sinners” as a result. I can’t wait to preach it myself at my church this summer. Hmmmm… I wonder how many “walkouts” there will be? Every evangelist needs a copy of this antidote to Joel Osteen . Get a copy and listen to a sample by clicking here.

  1. Question: Are you going to get yourself filmed preaching this Sermon Steve?

  2. Yes, Phil. Why do you ask?

  3. I heard and read this most powerful sermon a few times in my years. The first time I heard it in my newer Christian days had me examining my own faith there for a little while. Wow! Terrifyingly powerful! A must listen for every person on the planet be they saved, or especially, unsaved.

    The church needs this kind of preaching from the pulpit and on the streets. Seeker friendly types might even hate us for it. Jesus said they probably would.

    Jonathan Edwards is one of my favourite old time evangelist preachers. We should be considered blessed to have had him in our midst long ago and that we can still enjoy his inspiring messages today. Amen!

  4. Because I would like a Copy… Any way I could get a hold of one on a Dvd of some sort? Please let me know.

  5. When I do it, I will post it. Please request acopy then! God bless, Phil.
