Archibald Alexander - Thoughts on Religious Experience
This compilation of thoughts regarding individual Christian experiences, including narratives from the lives of some very notable Christians, sets forth examples to examine the boundaries between commendable religious experience and mere enthusiasm. As Archibald Alexander alternates between re-telling (with extensive quoting from from the selected narratives) and commentary on those experiences, he examines the Christian life in its different phases, including conversion and deathbed exercises. He also includes a chapter on backsliding that is worth reading. The accounts of the deathbed communications of past exemplars of the faith is inspiring.
