The Religious Affections Quite possibly one of the most important books ever written by America’s greatest theologian. Among the questions asked is, “What is the nature of true religion?” \"What are the signs of a true revival?\" and \"How is the heart changed?\" Edwards used his pulpit and his leadership of the Great Awakening to pen one of the most challenging and inquisitive books ever written.
I listened to this because it was very highly recommended by John Piper, Kevin DeYoung, Mark Dever and Kevin DeYoung.
Not an easy book to listen to, but the narrator does an excellent job.
It may be even harder to read. Listening to it, I missed a lot, but still got a lot out of it. It gives a serious account of how a Christian should live. I like (unlike other books) that the narrator does not say "chapter" and "verse" for each verse reference. Also I like that verses whose text is included are abbreviated when abbreviation will suffice.
At times a sentence/paragraph re- read is a must but, the beauty with which his penmanship enables you to share the magnitude and otherness of God is spectacular. I have subsequently obtained a 2 vol set of his works, and a complete library of his works as they are released through an American digital Bible software program I own.
Could not recommend Edwards with any more gusto.
