Use these creative lesson materials to help your teens get excited about studying Puritan minister Jonathan Edwards’ most famous sermon, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God.” When you connect this 1741 lecture to modern elements, such as heavy metal lyrics from bands such as Metallica and Slayer (school appropriate selections, of course), your kids will be aching to dig into the fire and brimstone of Edwards’ ghastly sermon. Just warn them – Edwards’ imagery isn’t for the faint of heart!

These 29 Prezi slides and 4 PDF pages include:

• Quickwrite topic to bridge students into the day’s lesson

• Helpful background on Puritan minister Jonathan Edwards and The Great Awakening

• High-interest game where students decide whether lines of text come from modern heavy metal song lyrics or Puritan minister Jonathan Edwards’ sermon (If you want to skip the “Heavy Metal Lyrics or Jonathan Edwards’ Sermon?” game, just end the Prezi lecture before the game slides and move into the text activity.)

• Two-page excerpt of “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” sermon with attractively designed graphic elements

• A handout of seven critical-thinking questions that require students to dig back into Jonathan Edwards’ words and their own minds to find the answers

• Detailed answer key, designed to make grading easy and help you guide class discussion
