About The Explusive Power of a New Affection:

Thomas Chalmers was a Scottish Presbyterian minister who served most of his life at St. John’s parish in Glasgow–a congregation that was both the largest and the poorest congregation in the city. Known for his extensive charitable work in caring for the poor and downtrodden, Chalmers was also an astute theologian. One of his most notable works is The Expulsive Power of a New Affection, in which Chalmers inspires his readers to remove the tangles of sin through the expulsive power of a new affection–desiring God. As a result of the fall, human feelings of love are often misplaced on the creation rather than the Creator. This classic work of the faith reorients our affections toward him.


About the Author:

Thomas Chalmers (1780–1847) was a Scottish preacher, theologian, and author who served as professor of theology at the University of St. Andrews and the University of Edinburgh. His many writings were primarily focused on the application of Christian ethics to the social issues of his day.



“Chalmers could do biblical exposition. But he was a scientist and a philosopher, as well as a preacher of biblical texts. His apologetical contribution, which made him so popular in his day, was to show that biblical morality is rooted not just in religious authority, but in the profound realities of the way things really are in the world…He appeals to what ordinary unbelievers can actually see about the way their heart works. By the time you are done reading [Chalmers] will shed so much light on the workings of your own heart.”

John Piper
