Consider Jonathan Edwards’ Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God.Based on the information in the introduction of the first section of the text, “The Literature of Early America,” we know that “Pilgrims and Puritans literally believed that all humankind was stained by Adam’s fall” (8). Which statements from the sermon do you think most effectively evoke the fear Edwards intended in the use of this rhetoric? Do you think a sermon like this has the same impact in the 21st century as it did in 1741? Your response should be at least 150 words in length. http://www.jonathan-edwards.org/Sinners.pdf
