1.To whom is the sermon addressed? The Congregation that he is preaching to.
2.According to Edwards, why is God wrathful? People are sinners, wicked, and his wrath is infinite and inevitable.
3.Reread the sixth paragraph. What people, according to Edwards, are not in the hands of this angry God? How is this state achieved? We are all sinners no matter what we believe or practice. It is God who keeps us from destruction and that has nothing to do with anything that we think prevents it.

4.Figurative language is language that cannot be taken literally since it was written to produce a certain effect. Edwards makes effective use of figurative language as he speaks of God’ s wrath. Find three examples of his use of figurative language and explain why they are effective. “The wrath of God is like great waters that are dammed for the present” “The bow of God’s wrath is bent, and the arrow made ready on the string, and justice bends the arrow at your heart …” “and if God should let you go, you would immediately sink and swiftly descend and plunge into the bottomless gulf”

5.Using the list of Tone Words as a guide, make a list of 20 words in this selection that produce tone or attitude. Awful, dreadful, abused, spew, burst, rough, rising, fierceness, mighty, destruction, pit, abhors, provoked, infinitely, venomous, suffered, pure, fearful, burn, burst, strength

6.How does Edwards’ sermon reflect the ideals of this time period? The Great Awakening occurred when “Fire and Brimstone” became popular. The uprising of harsh preaching and Hellish themes brought forth a sense of fear in the people of the time.

7.Explain how his sermon connects to a concept or theme in “The Crucible.” “The Crucible” focuses on the wrath of god, witches, and demons. The people of New England are the same in the sense that they are all scared of a higher being and it’s power over them.
