Overview

"For although to true religion there must indeed be something else besides affection, yet true religion consists so much in the affections that there can be no true religion without them."

Religious Affections was written to defend that conversion to Christianity involves both the emotion and intellect of the convert. Edwards even goes so far as to address his contemporaries for discouraging the inward experience of the believer. Edwards agrees that though the emotions are not normative for the Christian life, they have a place in Christian piety.
