What made Jonathan Edwards tick? Dane Ortlund shows us that Edwards was gripped, spellbound by what he saw in God – and that underscored everything he did. Such motivation is essential to authentic Christian living.


"Dane does a marvelous job of demonstrating how the "new sense of the heart," divinely and graciously imparted by God, governs Edwards' understanding of motivation in Christian obedience. I highly recommend Ortlund's clear and insightful study of it" -Sam Storms, Lead Pastor, Bridgeway Church, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

"There are many books that promise to reveal Jonathan Edwards' insight into the Christian life. This book delivers. Dane Ortlund, artfully using the incisive and perennial thought of Edwards, points us to a Christian obedience that is indeed a whole hearted delight." -Stephen J. Nichols, President, Reformation Bible College, CAO Ligonier Ministries, Sanford, Florida

"As I read the author's words on America's foremost theologian of his time, I found myself praying, 'Oh God, send a new awakening, and begin it in me!'" -Richard Bewes, OBE (1939 – 2019), formerly of All Souls Church, Langham Place, London, England

"Dane Ortlund has sat at the feet of Jonathan Edwards and has learned much of what moved Edwards to be the person he was As we read these pages, we will be led to the same internal relish for God that transformed Edwards' life, theology, and ministry. Like Edwards we will be powerfully drawn by "the beauty of holiness." -David Calhoun, (1937–2021) Professor of Church History, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri
