About this item
A fresh, comparative study of the innovative thought of Americas greatest theologianThough Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) is widely regarded as Americas most important theologian, very few people are actually familiar with his theology. InJonathan Edwards among the Theologians Oliver Crisp helpfully elucidates key themes in Edwardss thought.Treating Edwards as a constructive theologian with serious philosophical interests, Crisp explains Edwardss thinking on such matters as the Trinity, creation, original sin, free will, and preaching. Crisp underscores the innovative nature of Edwardss work by bringing his thought into dialogue with other creative and important Christian theologians such as Anselm and Arminius.What emerges from Crisps 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.
