ALWAYS IN GOD’S HANDS

EDWARDS LG COVER

Jonathan Edwards is one of the most respected early American theologians. In Always in God’s Hands, Owen Strachan recovers the real Jonathan Edwards—the thinker, the compassionate father, the courageous reformer—as opposed to the caricature of him that is often presented. Edwards believed God was ever-present in each of our lives, caring and encouraging us in every moment. In a moving letter to his daughter, he reminds her of that comforting truth by describing her as “always in God’s hands.”

Through daily quotes from Edwards’s letters and sermons, this inspirational devotional reveals the soaring theology and comforting spirituality of one of history’s most faithful and gifted pastors. With each meditation, compiler Owen Strachan offers refreshing and relevant insights, encouraging you in your walk with God.

I was very impressed with this devotional, which I would label as “deep”.  Being a Christian for 40 years, there were times I needed to digest this.  There are many good nuggets in here.  What was also nice, was getting to know Jonathan Edwards.  I had heard about him, but never really took the time to get to know the man – his thoughts, his words of wisdom.  What he wrote has made me grow deeper in my relationship with Christ.
