Student-friendly intro to one of America's most fascinating theological minds
Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) has long been recognized as one of the preeminent thinkers in the early Enlightenment and a major figure in the history of American Christianity.
In this accessible one-volume text, leading Edwards experts Oliver Crisp and Kyle Strobel introduce readers to the formidable mind of Jonathan Edwards as they survey key theological and philosophical themes in his thought, including his doctrine of the Trinity, his philosophical theology of God and creation, and his understanding of the atonement and salvation.
More than two centuries after his death, theologians and historians alike are finding the larger-than-life Edwards more interesting than ever. Crisp and Strobel's concise yet comprehensive guide will help new students of this influential eighteenth-century revivalist preacher begin to understand why.
