The Two Books

How great a person then must [Jesus] be for whose coming into the world the great God of heaven and earth, and governor of all things, spent four thousand years in preparing the way for his coming, going about it soon after the world was created, and from age to age doing great things, bringing mighty events to pass, accomplishing wonders without number, often overturning the world in order to it, and causing everything in the state of mankind, and all revolutions and changes in the habitable world, from generation to generation, to be subservient to this great design. Surely this must be some great and extraordinary person indeed, and a great work indeed it must [necessarily] be, that he is coming about.

Edwards, The History of the Work of Redemption (Yale, 9:292).
