About the Book

In the wake of recent revival movements, Christians need Jonathan Edwards' classic Faith Beyond Feeling more than ever. Edwards, the central figure in New England's first Great Awakening, offers a detailed description of the signs - false and true - revival, while highlighting the role balanced emotions play within the Christian life. An engaging introductory essay by Charles Colson details the impact of Faith Beyond Feeling on his own life and its implications for today's church.
