This volume contains Edwards' most mature and persistent attempt to judge the validity of the religious development in eighteenth-century America known as the Great Awakening. In developing criteria for such judgment he attacked at the same time one of the fundamental questions facing all religion: how to distinguish genuine from spurious piety? The Awakening created much bitter controversy; on the one side stood the emotionalists and enthusiasts, and on the other the rationalists, for whom religion was essentially a matter of morality or good conduct and the acceptance of properly formulated doctrine. Edwards, with great analytical skill and enormous biblical learning, showed that both sides were in the wrong. He attacked both a "lifeless morality" as too pale as to be the essence of religion, and he rejected the excesses of a purely emotional religion more concerned for sensational effects than for the inner transformation of the self, which was, for him, the center of genuine Christianity.… (mere)

I only started listening to this because it was free on ChristianAudio, but it's exactly what I needed at this point in my spiritual journey. It's all about the difference between those who are actually in Christ, and those who are fooling themselves. The difference is the religious affections, the genuine and unconditional love for the glory and holiness of God.

There's a lot in this book to digest, which is especially hard in the audio format, so I made highlights in the 99-cent kindle copy. That way, I can go back over the most relevant passages. It's a little technical in structure, but my brain loved that aspect of it. The English is a little old, but it's good to help one better absorb the previous meanings of words. Also the English wasn't old at all compared to John Bunyan which I'd just finished listening to.

Mr Edwards supports all his points very thoroughly with scripture, and offers help in many of the things modern writers are neglecting. I would recommend this to anyone who can comprehend it, or is willing to learn to comprehend it. ( )

With overwhelming logic and Scriptural backing, Edwards examines the true evidences of conversion and gives excellent counsel in examining both out own fruit and that of others. ( )
