Publisher's Description

Though Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) is widely regarded as America s most important theologian, very few people are actually familiar with his theology. In this book Oliver Crisp helpfully elucidates key themes in Edwards s thought.

Treating Edwards as a constructive theologian with serious philosophical interests, Crisp explains Edwards s thinking on such matters as the Trinity, creation, original sin, free will, and preaching. Crisp underscores the innovative nature of Edwards s work by bringing his thought into dialogue with other major Christian theologians such as Anselm and Arminius.

What emerges from Crisp's Jonathan Edwards among the Theologians is a complex, multifaceted picture of Edwards as a highly original, significant thinker who sometimes pressed at the very limits of orthodoxy and whose theological thought remains strikingly relevant today.
