"This lively update of Jonathan Edwards' classic Treatise Concerning Religious Affections is a masterful analysis for today of reality in the spiritual life... it was clearly a labor of love for its author; and I predict that many are going to thank God for it. I wish it could be made compulsory reading in every evangelical congregation." J. I. Packer, Regent College

Now McDermott, not only a leading Edwards scholar but also a master teacher, makes Edwards's insights accessible and practical for today's Christians. Seeing God
offers a clarifying glimpse at the signs of genuine Christianity- yesterday, today and for the ages.
