1 Review
An introduction to the life and thought of one of America's most important religious thinkers This modernized volume introduces readers to the life and thought of one of America's greatest theologians, Jonathan Edwards. Edwards was concerned about the thin veneer of Christianity that was being applied to revivalism then sweeping across eighteenth-century New England. The insights in his 1746 work, Religious Affections, remain extremely valuable in today's climate of evangelism. This volume also includes modernizations of some of his classic sermons, letters, essays, and private journals
