A Biblical Perspective on War. 
The author of these two sermons, Rev. John Edwards (1637-1716) — not to be confused with the distinguished New England pastor-theologian of the Great Awakening, Rev. Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) — was a reformed Church of England minister of great reputation for his devotion to Holy Scripture and its powerful exposition.
The 1st sermon provides a brief biblical, though comprehensive, survey of both Testaments on “The Lawfulness and Necessity of Going to War, on Just Occasions.” The conclusion consists of six practical instructions on how a solider is to conduct himself on the field of battle.
In the 2nd sermon, “The True Causes of the Ill Success of War” is more closely examined from Holy Scripture. The timeless and universal biblical principles related to this subject are pointedly and practically applied.
