 We who are Christians are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _____________

"The Great Awakening"

Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) was America's greatest theologian and a leader in "The Great Awakening" (which reached its height in the 1740's), a religious movement that decisively shaped American life.

This is the story of Edwards and his remarkable wife Sarah as seen through her eyes.  Sarah is played by Maggie Rowe, who adapted for the screen her one-person play performed for several years across America.

...international fame for spiritual leadership...  

The life of the Edwards' makes for an incredible story.  Leaders of a prestigious colonial American church parish, they survived the death of children and grandchildren, international fame for spiritual leadership, and local humiliation and public ridicule from opponents.  

Edwards paved the way for deeper understanding of the ways and working of God in the world that has inspired every generation since, yet he was voted out of his own congregation by resentful agitators.

Through it all was his faithful wife Sarah.  

Through it all was his faithful wife Sarah.  Mother of 11 children, she supported him through the peaks and valleys, even though she was herself subject to bouts of depression.

Edwards is often remembered for his famous sermon, Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, delivered in Enfield, Connecticut on July 8, 1741.

...insight into an unusual man who stands among the most influential in all of church history.  

In this program, however, we see him through the eyes of his beloved wife as a minister whose emphasis was far more on the grace and mercy of God. ________________________
