What is true virtue? If we do not regard God as central to virtue, we have missed the point of what virtue is. If one does not have the glory of God as his chief end, what he does is not truly virtuous.

Jonathan Edwards published his Nature of True Virtue in 1765. Edwards desired to defend the Christian understanding of what virtue is, opposing the rationalist understanding which diminished divine revelation.

The next series of lectures come from Dr. Tom Nettles' course on Jonathan Edwards and Andrew Fuller, taught in January of 2020 at Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary.
