The best sermon is Edwards "Sinners in the hands of an angry God", the worst is one that I have sat through was where the Priest explained to us that if God judged people then we should refuse to worship him, I seem to recall that he quoted from Desmond Tutu to support this position.

Edwards "Sinners in the hands of an angry God"

Someone drop a docx or a link that gives it in full, the only thing I find on the net is bits and pieces, To be honest I have never read it……I am curious as to why it is so controversial....

Thanks.

There was a link above to http://edwards.yale.edu/research/major-works/sinners-in-the-hands-of-an-angry-god - these should be the ones having an authoritative version, shared under http://edwards.yale.edu/archive?path=aHR0cDovL2Vkd2FyZHMueWFsZS5lZHUvY2dpLWJpbi9uZXdwaGlsby9nZXRvYmplY3QucGw/Yy4yMTo0Ny53amVv 

I made it into a PB, but as Logos carries the sermon in this resource: http://www.logos.com/product/3923/the-works-of-jonathan-edwards  I don't think it's okay to share the docx. The CCEL version is nearly the same, but uses a slightly more modernized text.

I laughed so hard I did cry--absolutely hilarious!  Thanks, I needed that Rosie...

Not in Logos, but this has got to be the worse sermon excerpt I have ever heard -- horrible on all fronts: style, exegesis, application: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRP5xIeqBB8

Rosie,

I just listened to the sermon excerpt you posted, is that truly the worst sermon you ever hear?  C'mon??

Best sermon: Paul - Acts 13:16-41 although I like Stephen's speech in Acts 7 too.

I guess I've been blessed to hear pretty good sermons most of the time. Smile I certainly can't think of any example off the top of my head that came close to the irrelevancy of that one to my own spiritual life, and the egregious misuse of Scripture.

I think one of the best contemporary books on the subject is Andy Stanley's Communicate for a Change. I hope it comes to Vyrso.
