Product Description

Jonathan Edwards, the central figure in New England's first Great Awakening, offers here his most detailed description of the signs--true and false--if revival, while highlighting the role truly balanced emotions play within the Christian life. He takes a long, hard look at the evidence of true conversion--the fruit that comes from living like Christ. It is not enough to do "Christian" things for without an authentic, selfless service motivated by the Holy Spirit, our works are empty.

Publisher's Description

Hailed by even secular analysts as the greatest philosophical mind ever to grace the American scene, Edwards shows that the sinner's will is most certainly not free, and that God must intervene if the soul is ever to choose what is good. Although Edwards intended this book to be an evangelistic tool, it is perhaps his most important work theologically and philosophically. This book annihilated false views of the will that prevailed in his century and in ours as well. Pelagianism certainly has a death grip on the modern church, but this book will help to loosen its hold through sound reasoning and biblical exegesis.

Endorsements

"This is the most important theological book ever published in America." -R.C. Sproul, Ligonier Ministries

    Edwards has a few interesting things to say in this book. But he really didn't need to make it as long as it is. I think he really dragged it out. Unlike some of his other books, this book is too deep and very hard to follow. Edwards rarely quotes Bible verses in this book. Most of his talk is about the nature of the will and how it acts. He says this from a perspective of understanding the human nature. It's almost as if Edwards writes this book from the knowledge he received in college. In my opinion, it doesn't have enough Biblical knowledge in it to be called a Christian book. It's more like worldly wisdom. And if you want to read this book so you can argue more about free-will vs. predestination, then forget it. This knowledge won't help you win an argument because the knowledge is human based, not Bible based. And we know that only the Word of God has the power to convict men and pierce through their hearts to convince them of the truth. Human knowledge has very little power. So the only thing this book would help you with would be if you're already a Calvinist and have a hard time understanding and want to understand the depravity of man to a fuller sense.
