Thurs May 16, "Jonathan Edwards and the Gospel of Love" by Dr. Ronald Story.
Author Ronald Story will speak about his newly published book. Jonathan Edwards has long epitomized the Puritan preacher as fiery scold, fixated on the inner struggle of the soul and the eternal flames of hell. In this book, Ronald Story offers a fundamentally different view of Edwards, revealing a profoundly social minister who preached a gospel of charity and community bound by love. This event is co-sponsored by the Pelham Library and the Pelham Historical Society.
