Author(s): Jonathan Edwards
Jonathan Edwards was the foremost leader of the Great Awakening in North America in the 18th Century. His writings continue to have a marked influence today on the life of the church, his example stands as a beacon to guide us from the shallows of our low levels of spirituality to the deeper waters of life. This classic book by Jonathan Edwards was first published to promote unity in prayer amongst all believers.
The name of Jonathan Edwards is synonymous with revival. And when it comes to renewal and revival in the church, I can't think of a better way to get one's heart beating in rhythm with the Saviour's than to spend time with Jonathan Edwards through his excellent treatise, "An Humble Attempt." The words may be from another century, but his passion and zeal, fervor and devotion to God are as fresh and first-hand as though he were preaching today. Joni Eareckson Tada (Activist for the disabled and author of Joni, the award-winning Tell Me the Promises and Tell Me the Truth, and other classics) For all his intellectual might, Edwards was the farthest thing from a cool, detached, neutral, disinterested academician. John Piper (Founder of Desiring God Ministries, Chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary, Author of spiritual classics including Desiring God and Don't Waste Your Life) If you prayerfully read these pages, the ripples of blessing just might go to 'the edge of the pond, ' and then drift on to eternity.' Erwin Lutzer (Senior Pastor, Moody Church, Chicago, Illinois) Too often Prayer is a small, dusty compartment of our lives. This book shows that if we really believe that Prayer is communicating with all powerful, holy, loving and just God - then it will be - it has to be - something entirely different. Luis Palau (Author of Changed by Faith, Portland, Oregon) ...one is not only stirred to the core by the mix of raw spiritual passion joined to brilliance of thought, but shaken by the amazing fact that this book could have been written today Jack Hayford (Founding Pastor The Church On The Way/Los Angeles, and Founder The Kings University)"
