Overview

TV evangelist scandals. More varieties of Christianity than Baskin-Robbins has flavors. These are times of pluralism and disenchantment with organized religion. How do Christians today know which leaders and companions in faith to trust? For help, Gerald McDermott returns to the work of Jonathan Edwards, the eighteenth-century preacher and college president widely regarded as the greatest American theologian ever. Edwards wrestled expertly with similar questions arising from frontier revivalism. Now McDermott, not only a leading Edwards scholar but also a master teacher, makes Edward's insights accessible and practical for today's Christians. Seeing God offers a clarifying glimpse at the signs of genuine Christianity - yesterday, today and for the ages.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In the New Age, where the practice of spirituality takes on such a variety of forms, how is the Christian able to discern the signs of an authentic Christian spirituality? McDermott (religion, Roanoke Coll.) offers sound guidance for Christians seeking answers to this question. In the first half of the book, he demonstrates the ways that some religious behavior, like the frequent and passionate praise of God, is very often a sign of superficial spirituality. McDermott then turns to Jonathan Edwards's treatise on religious affections to mark out the signs of a reliable Christian spirituality, including seeing the beauty of holiness and hunger for God. In elegant prose, McDermott recovers through Edwards a sense of the transcendent that much contemporary spirituality lacks. Essential for seminary libraries, but important for public libraries as well.
