There are certain marks that only a true believer in Jesus Christ possesses, and there are marks that do not prove a man to be in Christ at all. Yet all of these signs are religious in nature. In this important work, first published in 1813, the author shows which signs distinguish a true Christian and which do not. These include both internal and external marks.

Jonathan Edwards’s classic work The Religious Affections was the inspiration for this book. Gardiner Spring’s work is a solid introduction to the kind of self-examination through which we must all put ourselves.
