Book Review - The Religious Affections

The Religious Affections

By: Jonathan Edwards

Book Reivew

Reading (listening to) this book has been a long time and coming. I listened to it on audible, and because I am not good at listening to audio books, it look me several months to finish (with large gaps between listening sessions). So, my absorption was not near what it needed to be. But, I am glad to at least made it through the book a first time, and I am eager to pick up a hard copy and read it at some point.

What I like about Jonathan Edwards so far, is that he makes me think deeper. He lights up my mind with new energy on a topic and gets me excited to think about it more. The only minimal negative I experience with him is he can follow things to the logical nth degree; however, he did that less in this book. The principal value from this book is from its apt name - I thought about how people's affections on religious matters tend to work. This is helpful as we consider our own religious experience as well as observing others.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

The Attic

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
