After this work had gone to press, it was suggested to the publisher that some biographical information of its justly esteemed author, would be peculiarly acceptable to the reader and give a higher interest to the work. A sketch of the Author's life, his edifying diary, and a very particular account of his conversion, have accordingly been added. . As the works of the late President Edwards may not have been so generally diffused as many other works of less instructive tenor, the present publisher of his Treatise on Religious Affections deems it necessary to insert the recommendation of the following reverend gentlemen:
Mr. James Crissy, printer, being about to republish, in a single volume, the “Treatise concerning Religious Affections,” by the late President Edwards, and wishing an expression of the sentiments of some of the Ministers, relative to the utility of the work, the
difficulty lies in attempting to recommend a book, the praise of
which is in the churches. It admits of no rival on its subject, which is uninspired. The language is heavy, but every part of it indispensable. It is constantly put into the hands of those who wish to know themselves, and whether they be really Christians.
To such we recommend it.
J. J. JANEWAY.
