Andrew Fuller on Jonathan Edwards
In a personal letter to his friend, John Ryland, written on April 28, 1815, Andrew Fuller gave full vexation to his spirit in response to some critiques he and others had received concerning their high esteem for one Jonathan Edwards. He wrote:
“We have some who have been giving out, of late, that ‘If Sutcliff and some others had preached more of Christ, and less of Jonathan Edwards, they would have been more useful.’ If those who talked thus preached Christ half as much as Jonathan Edwards did, and were half as useful as he was, their usefulness would be double what it is.”
What he said ^.
