    These questions and others are addressed in Jonathan Edward’s masterpiece, The Religious Affections. To Edwards, these were the most important questions man has to answer. Edwards was the most prominent preacher of America’s first Great Awakening. He witnessed true revival at his church in Northampton, Massachusetts. Love is the chief of all religious affections: "Now the end of the commandments is love from a pure heart." 1 Tim. The fundamental object of true religious affections is the glory of God, apart from any relation to the self or to self-interest. () To quote Meister Eckhart: /5(82).

      The Religious Affections was quite hard to read due to Edwards’ overuse of commas, colons, and semicolons. His sentences never seemed to stop thinking. What I mean by this is that Edwards’ thoughts tend to be so deep and so long that he would barely give the reader time to rest his brain while reading the book.

      Jonathan Edwards’s classic study Religious Affections―abridged and updated―describes the signs, true and false, of conversion, highlighting the role of truly balanced emotions in Christian living. Edwards shows that the evidence of true conversion are the “religious affections”―the fruit of the Spirit as described in Galatians /5(92). In Religious Affections, Edwards lists twelve negative, or inconclusive, signs of conversion—including strong emotions, bodily reactions, and an outbreak of religious conversation—and twelve positive signs that show the Spirit has truly regenerated the heart unto faith in Christ. In his fourth positive sign, Edwards zeroes in on the way.

Edwards shows that the evidence of true conversion are the “religious affections”—the fruit of the Spirit as described in Galatians /5(). Because so many individuals hold Religious Affections in high regard, Im glad I read the book in which Edwards begins by asking, what is the nature of true religion.
