Jonathan Edwards wrote hundreds of sermons in his lifetime, but he is remembered best for his sermon Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God. This website makes available several sermons by Edwards, including Sinners in the Hands of An Angry God and The Peace Which Christ Gives His True Followers. Reading the two side-by-side will give you a better understanding of Edwards's work than reading just the more famous sermon.
