Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God

Jonathan Edwards was a Congregational minister in colonial America and a key figure in the First Great Awakening in the 1730s and 1740s. He is perhaps best known for his sermon, Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, here illustrated by Mr. Mandolin. Edwards' sermon emphasized the reality of Hell and the fate of all unrepentant sinners in the absence of God's mercy. Coincidentally, the Internet Monk blogged on Edwards' sermon just a couple of days ago. He's got an interesting blog and podcast that I would recommend.
