    "Quality Material Read Quickly"
    What did you love best about Religious Affections?

    The density and balance of Edward's thought stuck me as both beautiful and challenging. As an Anglican reader I found his Biblical fidelity deeply satisfying with very few cited passages on which I might question his approach. In other words, there was a time or two in which I thought his theology or his present purpose might have skewed his understanding of the text rather than having the text support that purpose or theological tack, but none so egregious that specifics come to mind.

    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    He speaks very clearly and captured very well what seemed to be Edward's sentiments in the subtleties of his inflection.


    Any additional comments?

    Frankly, the Puritans (and their progeny) are a difficult read for those in our culture who are accustomed to sound bites and 30-second blasts of information. Following the lines of reason can be arduous as Edwards has no problem developing a matter from his or someone else's standpoint for several minutes at a time. While Vance is superbly clear, his quick cadence mixed with the density of the material, not to mention his U.K. accent (I'm a New Englander living in the Mid-Atlantic US) made it so that it took me nearly half of the work to really get into the presentation as a whole. I love Vance in Chesterton's Orthodoxy, though. I attribute my difficulty more to the material than the read, but a slower pace seems like it would have made the product a little more accessible.
