:A fresh, comparative study of the innovative thought of America's greatest theologian
Though Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) is widely regarded as America's most important theologian, very few people are actually familiar with his theology. In Jonathan Edwards among the Theologians 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 creative and important Christian theologians such as Anselm and Arminius.
What emerges from Crisp's study 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.
Oliver D. Crisp (Ph.D., King's College, University of London) is Lecturer in Theology at the University of Bristol. Crisp is an evangelical philosophical theologian who completed his doctoral studies under Paul Helm.
