This PowerPoint includes information and questions about Jonathan Edwards' sermon "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God." It is framed in the context of modern advertising.
To do the activity on the last slide, you will need several magazines, newspapers, or printouts of advertisements. You could also do the activity as a whole class using television or radio ads.
Topics covered in the presentation include:
Basic Tenets of Puritanism
Four Forms of Discourse
Criteria for Evaluating Persuasion
Please note that although the preview shows light text on a light background, the PowerPoint uses the "Paper" theme, which is light text on a green background.
