Jonathan Edwards delivered one of his most famous sermons, "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God," on July 8, 1741, at Enfield Connecticut, at the height of the Great Awakening, a revival of Puritan faith for which Edwards was largely responsible. In his sermon, he attacks the mistaken assumption that an active member of the visible church is also restored to God's grace. Edwards' sermon follows a traditional three-part pattern: explanation of a biblical text, the Calvinistic doctrine depending on that text, and the application of the text to the contemporary situation. His sermon is also notable for the rich figurative language which evokes a vivid, almost terrifying view of hell and God's wrath.
