A Man Like Us
This is a piece which I wroe that I think is helpful, entitled, "A Man Like Us: Jonathan Edwards and the Spiritual Formation of Ministerial Candidates." The longer version appeared in Presbyterion 30 (2004): 1-10; this shorter version was in Covenant Magazine. The main argument was: "The early period of Edwards’ life still serves as a witness to the Church as we consider the process of spiritual formation for ministerial candidates. Both in its positive and negative aspects, Edwards’ spirituality during these early years teaches important lessons about how we as Christians and particularly as Christian leaders should live for God’s glory."
