This volume and its conclusions are both erudite and compelling. I recommended it highly. * Detroit Baptist Seminary Journal * [This] is an important book for two primary reasons. First, it does a fine job explaining fully a crucial area of Edwards' thinking; second, it corrects misunderstandings that are prevalent in contemporary Christianity related to that area. What is this crucial area of Edwards' thinking? Affections. I've been waiting for a stand-alone volume that addresses this issue - and the contemporary misunderstanding and misappropriation of it by some parts of the church today - and am glad to see this book in print. * Josh Moody, College Church, USA * "Interest in Jonathan Edwards has experienced something of a resurgence recently among Evangelicals, yet treatments of Edwards's theology often fail to recognize his core anthropology, anachronistically equating his understanding of the category of affections with contemporary notions of "emotion." Ryan Martin provides the most comprehensive study of Edwards's thought on matters related to Christian affections, serving as a necessary corrective to contemporary treatments of one of America's most respected theologians." * Scott Aniol, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, USA * "Jonathan Edwards predicates his argument in Religious Affections on the distinction between affections and passions. Contemporary writers who think only in terms of emotions typically fail to grasp the significance of this distinction, consequently losing much of Edwards's argument. Ryan Martin has done superior work in tracing the history of this distinction and teasing out its significance for Edwards. His work constitutes an important corrective to several current misconceptions." * Kevin T. Bauder, Central Baptist Seminary, USA *
