  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jesse Janis | 2/17/2014

    " Please do not read this book on your own. Read it with other people, possibly in a group. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Job Dalomba | 2/16/2014

    " Absolutely love this book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeremy Egerer | 2/14/2014

    " One of the most important Christian books ever written, period. If you want to know the difference between "salvation" and actual salvation, this books delivers. Essential reading; perhaps more important reading than Calvin's Institutes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Edward | 2/12/2014

    " Best theological treatise on revival. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 dthaase | 1/27/2014

    " I can't believe I haven't read this book until now. It is a must read for any Christian. I would also highly recommend this edition which was edited by Houston -- it makes Edwards so readable & enjoyable. The wedding of the mind and heart are truly within these pages and much is to be gained from ruminating on his logical statements as well as his high view of the Holy Spirit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jerry | 1/25/2014

    " Edwards encountered false and true revival in his day and spent a good deal of time learning to distinguish the two. This is part of the fruit of that work. This is the first full book I've read by Edwards and it won't be the last. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 1/14/2014

    " I need to re-read this more carefully, but I have skimmed through it, and find myself much improved in soul and spirit every time I turn to this genuine and earnest writer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jakenthia Simms | 12/22/2013

    " thuz book zonud relly good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric Durso | 12/20/2013

    " It takes a while to get through, but it's a worthwhile trek. The section on humility is probably the best I've ever read on the subject. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 12/18/2013

    " There are few books that help you grow in assurance, love for Christ, thankfulness for the gospel, and in joy than "Affections". This will be the second going through this book and I look forward to the benefit that each day will extract from reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Comis | 12/16/2013

    " Read this a while ago, so I should dip into it again. I remember it changed my life at the time. Very good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liesel | 12/4/2013

    " Central to my understanding of the First Great Awakening. Even though it was written a very long time ago, it is thought provoking. It is very heavy and hard to get through. I did it in little bits. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Luke | 10/30/2013

    " Powerful ability to nuance and articulate the spiritual depths. Incredible ability to write run run-on sentences too. The language is so dense that it's hard to power through this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandon Barnes | 7/26/2013

    " You can't really go wrong with Edwards. This edition has some tiny print, but it is well worth the eye strain. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clarissa | 9/30/2012

    " Edwards takes a lot of mental effort just to keep up with him, but the jewels of truth and wisdom in his writing is well worth the effort. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tyler Hurst | 4/4/2012

    " Emotion, worship, affection, desire for God. These are issues every church (and every Christian) should think about. How can I be sure my affections are true? This is the question Edwards seeks to answer and it is extremely relevant in our post-modern, experiential culture. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jay Risner | 12/2/2011

    " Laborious, but great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hon | 9/27/2011

    " thought-provoking, and surprisingly relevant to the current context even though it's been written so long ago! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tonya Mandich | 8/13/2011

    " You could really read this book over, and over, and over again... and always get a drink: Every thought is prefaced or punctuated by Scripture. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark Ward | 8/8/2011

    " Edwards puts his readers in contact with Scripture, and he does some intense examination of the human person. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lonnie Smith | 7/1/2011

    " This one is going back on the shelf for a bit. I enjoyed what I read, but need to revisit it to finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Butch | 3/21/2011

    " With overwhelming logic and Scriptural backing, Edwards examines the true evidences of conversion and gives excellent counsel in examining both out own fruit and that of others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane | 2/19/2011

    " A classic by a Puritan pastor on the spiritual life, and how to distinguish false religious emotions from true ones. Edwards comes across as seeking to assist and support the reader's spiritual development. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jesse | 2/9/2011

    " Please do not read this book on your own. Read it with other people, possibly in a group. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Devan | 6/27/2009

    " Must be read. Period. Must be read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason | 5/29/2009

    " My cousin bought this book for me over 12 years ago. I read it then and have not stopped going back to it ever since. A true classic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Butch | 4/18/2009

    " With overwhelming logic and Scriptural backing, Edwards examines the true evidences of conversion and gives excellent counsel in examining both out own fruit and that of others. "

    " Best theological treatise on revival. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Towens23 | 7/3/2008

    " It's pretty dense, but the more I get used to the style the more I'm drawn into worshipping God for the sake of His beauty, not just for what He can do for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 5/31/2008
