Sobre l'autor

In 1716 Edwards was admitted to Yale at the remarkable age of thirteen. After he graduated in 1722, he spent four years there pursuing theological interests, teaching, and completing his master's degree. In 1727 ,Edwards complied with his grandfather's request and traveled to Northhampton, mostra'n més Massachusetts to be his assistant in his church. A committed scholar of John Calvin and the early Puritan theologians, as well as of the writings of John Locke and Isaac Newton, Edwards pursued a theology founded on two seemingly contradictory themes---a desire to return to the Calvinist tradition, as well as a desire to include the insights of contemporary Enlightenment philosophy. While Edwards's theological formulations were not completely developed until the 1750s, his lifetime pursuit of these ideas profoundly influenced the Puritan period of religious revival known as the Great Awakening. Though Edwards's provocative theology and sermons occasionally invoked fire and brimstone, as in the famous Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God (1741), his sermons generally moved parishioners to faith through the employment of positive imagery, as in God Glorified in Man's Dependence (1731). In spite of his successes during the Great Awakening, Edwards was ultimately involved in a controversy that led to his dismissal at the Northhampton parish in 1750. Viewed as too progressive by a faction of the church known as the Old Lights, Edwards stepped down after delivering his famous Farewell Sermon (1750), in which he declared that God would ultimately determine whether Edwards had been right or wrong (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

Esta obra começou a ser escrita pelo teólogo e filósofo reformado Jonathan Edwards em meados de 1750 e só foi publicada após sua morte, em 1765. De lá para cá, muita coisa mudou de forma que a fé em Deus se tornou ainda mais disseminada ao redor do mundo. "O fim para o qual Deus criou o mundo" apresenta ao leitor uma aula de argumentação filosófica e exposição bíblica a respeito de uma inquietação do autor: Com que finalidade Deus criou o mundo? O que ele tinha em mente ao arquitetar uma criação tão vasta e bela? E que implicações a resposta à questão central da obra oferece para o leitor? Todas as respostas para essas perguntas estão registradas ao longo das 256 páginas desse livro cristão. A genialidade de Jonathan Edwards resistiu ao tempo e oferece nos dias de hoje uma rara oportunidade de conhecer e absorver a linha argumentativa sofisticada, original e exemplar de um dos maiores pensadores cristãos de todos os tempos.… (més)

Mais uma vez, Deus e sua graça têm lugar central no palco - como em todas as obras de Edwards - enquanto o grande pregador de Northampton nos conduz, por meio de três sermões, mostrando como Deus se agrada em desenvolver sua salvação na vida dos que o amam. O foco principal, porém, está naquilo que Deus requer de nós - como devemos assumir nossos deveres e aproveitar cada oportunidade de melhorar nosso relacionamento com Jesus Cristo.
