Early Evangelicalism

Joseph Bellamy

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents excerpts from Joseph Bellamy's 1750 book True Religion Delineated; or, Experimental Religion, As Distinguished from Formality on the One Hand, and Enthusiasm on the Other, Set in a Scriptural and Rational Light. Bellamy is considered one of the most important evangelical theologians of the eighteenth century. Along with Samuel Hopkins, he became a disciple of Jonathan Edwards and progenitor of the “New Divinity” movement. In True Religion Delineated, Bellamy outlined the intricacies of obedience to the law, which he believed true Christianity depended on. He wanted to convince his readers that God's moral law, established before creation, remained alive, even after the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ.
