Theological Method and the Doctrine of Assurance in Jonathan Edwards's A Treatise Concerning Religious Affections

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Eric Lehner examines Edwards’s use of philosophical, historical, and biblical sources in Religious Affections and demonstrates that Edwards’s theology in this key work is governed by Scripture, rather than by historical, metaphysical, or epistemological considerations. 

Lehner calls into question the proliferation of proposals that suggest Edwards’s theology is driven by central interpretive ideals, socioeconomic forces, philosophical models, or other nonbiblical considerations. He uncovers the shortfalls of secular interpretations of Edwards and advances an interpretation—valuing an interpretation that endeavors to understand him in terms of his faith, rather than apart from it. 

“Professor Lehner has offered here an outstanding contribution to our understanding of Edwards, his doctrine of assurance, and his theological method.” 
—DOUGLAS A. SWEENEY, Professor of Church History and the History of Christian Thought, Director of the Jonathan Edwards Center, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School 

“Dr. Lehner examines Religious Affections with a prodigious eye to detail and he asks bigger questions about the theological method adopted in Edwards’s exposition of Christian assurance and authentic spiritual experience.” 
—RHYS BEZZANT, Dean of Missional Leadership, Director of the Jonathan Edwards Center, Ridley College, Australia
