Knowing the Heart:

Jonathan Edwards on

True and False Conversion

Taken from previously unpublished manuscripts of Jonathan Edwards.

Rev. Thomas Adam wrote: "It is a great point of religion to know the heart. I see but a very small part of its deceit, hypocrisy, and desperate wickedness." Knowledge of the heart of man is critical to all who are involved in ministry in any way and also to the individual professor of the gospel who is willing to do what Paul commanded, "Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith" (2 Corinthians 13:5). Knowing the Heart: Jonathan Edwards on True and False Conversion is a book of sermons and treatises by Jonathan Edwards dealing with the depravity of the heart, the hardening of the heart, and the nature of true and false conversion. There is commentary on each one of the manuscripts by William C. Nichols explaining what we can learn about the heart and conversion from each sermon and also how to apply it in evangelism and preaching the gospel message. Only one sermon in this book has ever been published before and that was in 2002. The book will be about 435 pages in length, hardcover, with 12 previously unpublished manuscripts by Edwards containing over 20 sermons. To order send a check for $23.95 to International Outreach at the address below. Knowing the Heart is now available.

Some of the sermons that are included are:
