Some Thoughts on the New England Revival aims to defend an unprecedented period of revival against the unjust words of its critics and the excesses of it friends, both of which, Edwards feared, would quench the Spirit and put a stop to the glorious work. What is a revival? How is it to be recognised? Is it a genuine work of the Spirit of God? If it is, how should it be acknowledged and promoted? These questions are taken up and answered by 'the theologian of revival', who, in God?s providence, has supplied future generations of Christians with a sure guide on this vital subject.
1742 was a year of great blessing but also of growing controversy. The Great Awakening of 1740 was still in progress, but a few dissenting voices were starting to make themselves heard. In Thoughts on the New England Revival Jonathan Edwards spoke out, not for the first time, in defence of what he considered to be 'the glorious work of God'.
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.
