Revival by Jonathan Edwards


Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) was one of the few truly great theologians of the English-speaking world, an intellectual and spiritual giant.  When he began his ministry at Northampton Massachusetts, New England had drifted from the Puritanism of its founders.  Resisting the current trend, Edwards preached the whole counsel of God, and God plainly honoured his testimony.  Yet to all appearances his life ended in tragedy; voted out of his pastorate by the people of Northampton, he died of fever at Princeton, only two months after taking over as President of the college.  Edwards is perhaps best known as the theologian of revival, a subject on which he was uniquely qualified to write, by reason of his theological grasp and a first-hand experience of awakenings.  Of his several treatises in this field, The Religious Affections ranks as the 'magnum opus'.

Apart from his contribution to the Church in his own lifetime, Edwards left posterity in his debt by his prolific writings.  His sermons and treatises have a timeless character.  Special interest attaches to this volume, containing one of his most analytical treatises on revival, Distinguishing Marks of a Work of the Spirit of God, and his justly famous Narrative of Surprising Conversations.  The Narrative is both a detailed account of the famous revival of religion at Northhampton in 1735 and a broad over-all Scriptural view and assessment of the work.  It is hoped that this new edition will heop further to familiarize evangelicals with one of their great forbears.
