Afterward he stayed in New Haven for two years studying theology. At age nineteen he was called to minister a church in New York. Then he went on to North Hampton, Massachusetts, where his grandfather pastored. Jonathan Edwards was ordained on February 15, 1727, to become the associate pastor of the church in North Hampton, to assist his grandfather. Later, he became the pastor of the church. Afterwards, in November of 1734, he began to preach sermons on salvation.
Mr. Jonathan Edwards preached what has been called the greatest message in history, "Sinners in the Hand of an Angry God." He also wrote many books. Through his sermons over 500 people were saved. I'm sure that many people also read, and were saved through, the books that he had written.
Jonathan Edwards is remembered most for his sermon 'Sinners in the Hand of an Angry God.' He is also remembered for his books, and simple way of preaching. Jonathan Edwards has passed on to us many books that can be read today. There are also many websites that have part or whole of some of his messages.
