Jonathan Edwards and the Stockbridge Mohican Indians by Roy M. Paul (FREE)
H&E Publishing is giving away this month the book Jonathan Edwards and the Stockbridge Mohican Indians by Roy M. Paul.
From the publisher:
The story of the Stockbridge Mohican Indians, unlike that portrayed in the legendary Last of the Mohicans, is a story of tragedy and deceit, and yet one of endurance and strength. These proud people, despite the many efforts to remove their identity and eradicate their unique culture, have endured and continue to flourish, ensuring future generations will benefit from their rich legacy. This book chronicles the history of the Mohican people, highlighting their desire to know more about the "Great, Good Spirit," by asking for a Christian minister to come to them. After the untimely death of their first missionary, John Sergeant, they were blessed by the ministry of Jonathan Edwards, the foremost theologian in American history. He has been described as, "an activist, preacher, contemplative, missionary, philosopher, and theologian." Not only did Edwards bring them the Word of God, but he also fought relentlessly for their rights. Herein lies a glimpse into the history of these noble people and Edwards' efforts for their physical and spiritual well-being.
