Edwards on Justification

An extract from a letter by Andrew Fuller to Timothy Dwight, grandson of Jonathan Edwards. The letter was written on June 1, 1805, commending the writings of Jonathan Edwards.

The writings of your grandfather, President Edwards, and of your uncle, the late Dr. Edwards [Jr.], have been food to me and many others. Our brethren Carey, Marshman, Ward, and Chamberlain, in the East Indies, all greatly approve of them. The President’s sermons on justification have afforded me more satisfaction on that important doctrine than any human performance which I have read.
