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.

Jonathan Edwards

Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) is widely acknowledged to be America's most important and original philosophical theologians. He is known as one of the greatest and most profound of American theologians and revivalists. He was the foremost leader of the Great Awakening in North America in the 18th Century. His writings continue to have a marked influence today on the life of the Church, his example stands as a beacon to guide us from the shallows of our low levels of spirituality to the deeper waters of life. Jonathan Edwards wrote such classics as Sinner in the Hands of an Angry God, Sermons of Jonathan Edwards and Call to United, Extraordinary Prayer.- Publisher.
