026 Religious Affections (Jonathan Edwards)
Needed now more than even, the treatise on Religious Affections by Jonathan Edwards will force even its modern Christian readers to probe and cultivate the depths of their living faith. Join Dr. Boa as he surveys this most penetrating gaze into those Christian desires and feelings that can mark the difference between genuine faith and its lifeless counterfeits.
After examining the life and thought of Jonathan Edwards, Dr. Boa reviews the three major sections and key assertions dominating this classic treatise. Published after revivalism hit his fellow New Englanders in 1742, Edwards ardently defends the work of the Holy Spirit during the Great Awaking. At the same time, Religious Affections exposes the shallow religiosity accompanying the movements as mere carnal imitations caught up in self-love and fleeting human passions. Edwards' concern for genuine and reliable marks of godly faith, as well as the need to pursue and distinguish true holy affections continue to speak to a contemporary Christian culture living among similar emotional fads and blind self-righteousness.
