Having been thinking about "religious experience" and the Great Awakenings, I am curious as to your thoughts on Archibald Alexander's Thoughts on Religious Experience. I tended to notice among Edwards and his followers, like Piper, they tend to place a high view on the emotions and experience that at times it (if not always) becomes the defining mark of true conversion and piety. I am suspicious of such views and think, more often than not, that its pervasive influence on evangelicalism is destructive, especially among the charismatics. What are Dr. Alexander's views? Is he more restrained?
