Sam Storms, one of evangelicalism’s experts on Jonathan Edwards, has attempted to bridge the gap between what Edwards said in the eighteenth century and how he might say it today. In Signs of the Spirit, Storms articulates the substance of Edwards’ arguments in a more understandable way to make his work accessible to a wider audience. This volume serves those both inside and outside the academic realm as valuable preparation for, or a companion guide to, a reading of Edwards’ Religious Affections.

Jonathan Edwards’ Religious Affections remains one of the most discerning works of spiritual psychology published in the last several centuries. Dr. Samuel Storms’ unpacking of this significant work, along with his treatment of Edwards’ ‘Personal Narrative,’ reveals once again for a new generation why the old Puritan so much deserves the most careful study today.

After nearly 300 years, these gems of Edwards continue to sparkle. It is no exaggeration to say that they stand as two of the best, most profound, and practically useful guides to everyday Christian living ever written. Sam Storms has done a superb job interpreting them for twenty-first century followers of Jesus. His vivid paraphrases are easy to read and always edifying. I pray that many will read and meditate upon this labor of love—and then move on to delve into Edwards’ own writings.
