Edwards on New Christians and Spiritual Growth

I found this series on the Pure Church blog, and decided to post links here.

From the first post, here’s the introduction:

On June 3, 1741, Jonathan Edwards wrote a letter to Deborah Hatheway. Mrs. Hatheway was converted during the awakening in New England and, since her church was without a pastor at the time sought Edwards’ counsel on how to grow as a new Christian. Edwards replied in a short letter with 19 things Hatheway should think and do. The letter is reprinted Michael A.G. Haykin’s A Sweet Flame: Piety in the Letters of Jonathan Edwards. For the next couple of posts, I’ll quote some of the advice that Edwards give.

And here are the actual posts in the series, from Pure Church:I found this very useful; I hope you will too.
