Jonathan Edwards’s treatise Religious Affections is widely considered the most important and accurate analysis of religious experience ever written.

Unfortunately, many well-intentioned readers sit down with Religious Affections, only to give up in frustration over Edwards’s lofty style and complex argumentation.

For this reason Sam Storms, one of evangelicalism’s experts

It took me months to read this book, but what a worthwhile labor it has been. I have always been intimidated by the writings of Jonathan Edwards, but Storms did a fantastic job of making Edwards accessible, warm, and exhilarating. I would heartily recommend this as a gateway into Jonathan Edwards and that is a gate that should be opened.
Sam Storms does an excellent job of relating Jonathan Edwards' mature reflections on the First Great Awakening. This book will, at times, leave you doubting whether or not you are actually saved, but in the end, believers can use this as a way to fight for joy in their lives.

I appreciate Mr. Storms modern interpretation of Jonathan Edwards' Religious Affections. The modern language made it so much more enjoyable to read!
John Root
Religious Affections by Jonathan Edwards, made much more accessible. One of the most spiritually convicting/challenging books I've ever read.
A thorough self-check on what the presence of the Holy Spirit should look and feel like. Excellent.
Excellent book, one I read again, and no doubt again after that.

finding it helpful to read alongside Edwards
Deep, hard read. Storms helped me to comprehend a very difficult, but immensely edifiying classic. And convicting. As relevant today as it was 3 centuries ago in considering the genuine work of the Spirit.
