Few questions are more fundamental to human existence, and few people have thought as deeply and biblically about this question as Jonathan Edwards. In this seven-lesson series, Professor Joe Rigney walks step by step through Jonathan Edwards’s treatise The End for Which God Created the World, exploring the biblical and rational roots beneath Edwards’s argument along the way, and showing the impact that his God-centered theological vision ought to have on Christian worship.
