This study focuses on Jonathan Edwards’s Treatise Concerning Religious Affections and shows that rather than discontinuity, Edwards’s religion of the heart reflects a conservative extension of traditional Puritan thought into the time of the Great Awakening. It opposes the main-stream scholarly views of Edwards, argue that, however unique as a fully synthesized and exhaustive work, the Religious Affections is constructed almost entirely from elements deriving from 16th and 17th century Puritanism.
