Read full description of the books Religious Affections: True Faith Shows Itself in the Fruit of the Spirit and Christlike Living:You probably know him for preaching the sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God”—but Jonathan Edwards had much more to say about the Christian life. The central figure in New England’s first Great Awakening, Edwards offers a detailed description of the signs—true and false—of conversion, while highlighting the role truly balanced emotions play within the Christian life. He takes a long, hard look at the evidence of true saving faith—the fruit that comes from living like Christ. This newly-typeset edition of Religious Affections is updated and abridged for ease of reading.
Read information about the authorLibrarian Note: There is more than one author in the Goodreads database named Solomon Stoddard. He was a student minister, not a visiting pastor, his rule being thirteen hours of study a day. In the same year, he married Sarah Pierpont, then age seventeen, daughter of Yale founder James Pierpont (1659–1714). In total, Jonathan and Sarah had eleven children.
Stoddard died on February 11th, 1729, leaving to his grandson the difficult task of the sole ministerial charge of one of the largest and wealthiest congregations in the colony. Throughout his time in Northampton his preaching brought remarkable religious revivals.
Yet, tensions flamed as Edwards would not continue his grandfather's practice of open communion. Stoddard believed that communion was a "converting ordinance." Surrounding congregations had been convinced of this, and as Edwards became more convinced that this was harmful, his public disagreement with the idea caused his dismissal in 1750.
Edwards then moved to Stockbridge, Massachusetts, then a frontier settlement, where he ministered to a small congregation and served as missionary to the Housatonic Indians. There, having more time for study and writing, he completed his celebrated work, The Freedom of the Will (1754).
Edwards was elected president of the College of New Jersey (later Princeton University) in early 1758. He was a popular choice, for he had been a friend of the College since its inception. He died of fever at the age of fifty-four following experimental inoculation for smallpox and was buried in the President's Lot in the Princeton cemetery beside his son-in-law, Aaron Burr.
