Product description

Review

"Dane does a marvelous job of demonstrating how the "new sense of the heart," divinely and graciously imparted by God, governs Edwards' understanding of motivation in Christian obedience. I highly recommend Ortlund's clear and insightful study of it"

-- Sam Storms, Bridgeway Church, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (Lead Pastor, Bridgeway Church, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma)

"There are many books that promise to reveal Jonathan Edwards' insight into the Christian life. This book delivers. Dane Ortlund, artfully using the incisive and perennial thought of Edwards, points us to a Christian obedience that is indeed a whole hearted delight."

-- Stephen J. Nichols, Lancaster Bible College and Graduate School, Lamcaster, Pennslyvania

"As I read the author's words on America's foremost theologian of his time, I found myself praying, 'Oh God, send a new awakening, and begin it in me!'"

-- Richard Bewes, Former Rector of All Souls Church, Langham Place, London

"Dane Ortlund has sat at the feet of Jonathan Edwards and has learned much of what moved Edwards to be the person he was As we read these pages, we will be led to the same internal relish for God that transformed Edwards' life, theology, and ministry. Like Edwards we will be powerfully drawn by "the beauty of holiness."

-- David Calhoun

Dane Ortlund's book on Christian motivation is timely and important as Christians wrestle with the problems of licence and legalism. He has combined an acute theological analysis of what motivates authentic Christian obedience with pastoral sensitivity and urgency, drawing on Jonathan Edwards' colossal vision of God. I found the book stimulating for its learning, but much more importantly spiritually searching and encouraging. Edwards encouraged his flock to live rejoicing in God and this book captures just that call.

-- Michael Ovey
