Jonathan Edwards – Birthday and Works

October 5, 2008

Jonathan Edwards was born 305 years ago today. Arguably, he is the greatest genius in American philosophy and theology to date. He was also a very instrumental preacher. Perhaps today he is most well known for his work on Freedom of the Will (in theology and philosophy) and his sermon, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God.” His works, in 73 volumes, are now available on-line here (link).

Jackson’s Birthday

January 21, 2008

And, of course, as a follow-up to my previous post (link), today is the birthday of General “Stonewall” Jackson: military hero and devout Christian gentleman. Born in 1824. Read more here.

UPDATE: Benjamin Glaser’s tribute (here).

Happy 200th Birthday …

January 19, 2008

… to General Robert E. Lee. Christian, gentleman, patriot, and hero. May God give us more men like him. (see McCrory’s discussion)

UPDATE: Obviously, this post is about a year late. Yesterday was the 201st anniversary of Lee’s birth.
