With the Complete, Modernized Text of The Distinguishing Marks of a Work of the Spirit of God
Sproul and Parrish modernize the text of this Jonathan Edwards classic, complete with introduction and explanatory footnotes. No admirer of Edwards or of revivalist literature in general will want to go without this one.
America is gripped in an ongoing war that has divided our nation over issues of sexual morality, the relation between church and state, the collapse of the family unit, the emergence of a drug culture, and a radical change in the customs of polite speech. Because of this cultural war, America desperately needs revival.
In The Spirit of Revival R.C. Sproul and Archie Parrish take the classic work by Jonathan Edwards, The Distinguishing Marks of a Work of the Spirit of God, and make it more accessible to the common reader. Edwards’ original discourse is carefully broken down into powerful sections, allowing theologians and the common lay worker the opportunity to recognize the true marks of revival: love and humility.
R. C. SPROUL is the founder of Ligonier Ministries and the author of over sixty books, including The Dark Side of Islam, and Defending Your Faith.
ARCHIE PARRISH is the founder and president of Serve International and faithfully works to train evangelical churches in prayer discipleship.
“This edition will enable the curious to get a taste of eighteenth–century American religion and its most celebrated theologian.”
—Gerald R. McDermott, Professor of Religion, Roanoke College
“This reader–friendly volume begins with an introductory essay by Sproul. . . . For readers unfamiliar with Edwards, Sproul’s essay is a valuable introduction. The book includes a discussion guide and a suggested application of the material for small–group settings.”
—Glenn Kreider, Professor of Theological Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary; Contributor, Bibliotheca Sacra
