    The Northampton Press has a new collection of rare sermons by Jonathan Edwards. Of the 15 sermons, 1 has never been published before and 12 are available in the expensive Yale University Press editions. Two of the sermons are from the Hickman edition published by Banner of Truth. All of these, however, are original as far as editing, formatting, etc.

    This book is, for the present, only available as an e-book from Amazon, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, Lulu, and GooglePlay.
    The price is 7.99. In manuscript form there are 344 pages.

    Here is the table of contents:

    Sermon 1
    Full of Grace and Truth

    Sermon 2
    If Persons Have Ever Tasted the Sweetness of the Word and the Grace of Christ, They Will Be Longing
    for More of It

    There Is an Answerableness Between the Greatness of the Misery of Hell and the Happiness of Heaven

    Sermon 4
    ’Tis in Vain for Any to Expect to Have Their Prayers Heard as Long as They Continue in the
    Allowance of Sin

    to Heap Up Treasures

    Sermon 12

    Thanks, Don: that looks great. Which (without having to do the comparative Yale/Hickman work) of the sermons has never been published?

    Peace,
    Alan

    Actually, Alan, I got that information from sending the TOC to Ken Minkema at the JE Center at Yale. I asked him if any of these had been published before and he wrote back that all but 1 had been. I neglected to ask him which one.

    Alan, this is the one that has not been reprinted before:

    The Bodies of Wicked Men as Well as Their Souls Will Be
    Punished Forever in Hell

    “Fear Him which is able to destroy both body and soul in hell.” Matthew 10:28
