Jonathan Edwardsrsquo; 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 Edwardsrsquo; s lofty style and complex argumentation. For this reason Sam Storms, one of evangelicalismrsquo; s experts on Edwards, has attempted to bridge the gap between how Edwards said what he did in the eighteenth century and how he might say it today. In Signs of the Spirit he articulates the substance of Edwardsrsquo; s arguments in a more understandable way. The point is not to ldquo; dumb downrdquo; Jonathan Edwards but to make his work accessible to a wider audience. This volume will serve those both in and outside the academic realm as valuable preparation for, or as a companion guide to, a reading of Edwardsrsquo; s Religious Affections.
