Edward Dorr Griffin remains one of the most significant revivalists of the early nineteenth century, and in this volume, some of his most influential works are collected. There are twenty sermons, including a memoir of Griffin’s life. Griffin’s writing and sermons are well-known for powerful exposition of Scripture and compassionate calls for revival. His writing is also characterized by solid theology and evangelical concerns. After studying theology from Jonathan Edwards, he entered the ministry. A firm believer in education, he later became president and professor of sacred rhetoric of Williams College.
This resource is invaluable to any student of revivalist influence and anyone wanting a greater understanding of living a holy life. With the Logos edition, The Life and Sermons of Edward D. Griffin, vol. 1 is readily accessible with your other resources, perfect for personal or academic study.
The history of his [Griffin’s] life seems little less than the history of one unbroken revival; and it would perhaps be difficult to name the individual in our country since the days of [George] Whitefield, who has been instrumental of an equal number of hopeful conversions.
—William B. Sprague
