Some Thoughts on the New England Revival aims to defend an unprecedented period of revival against the unjust words of its critics and the excesses of it friends, both of which, Edwards feared, would quench the Spirit and put a stop to the glorious work. What is a revival? How is it to be recognised? Is it a genuine work of the Spirit of God? If it is, how should it be acknowledged and promoted? These questions are taken up and answered by 'the theologian of revival', who, in God's providence, has supplied future generations of Christians with a sure guide on this vital subject.
