Product Description

This book offers a new paradigm for understanding Jonathon Edwards as a religious thinker. Much attention has been given to selected aspects of Edward's thought; Michael McClymond, however, presents a comprehensive approach to Edwards in relation to his eighteenth-century intellectual context. In each of six chapters, the author contextualizes and interperets some text or issue in Edwards within the emergent post-Lockean, post-Newtonian culture of the English-speaking world of the 1700s. Among the topics considered are spiritual perception, metaphysics, spirituality, ethics, history, and apologetics.

Editorial Reviews

"Winner of the Brewer Prize of the American Society of Church History, this fresh approach to the theology of Jonathan Edwards avoids the narrow specialization of recent studies, yielding a sense of the whole rather than a glimpse of fragments....Recommended for a wide readership, from undergraduates to research specialists."--Choice

"Clearly and cleverly written....Recommended for courses in American religious thought."--Religious Studies Review

"Straightforward and accessible... The excellent tandem of McClymond and McDermott has produced a standard and indispensible reading... I finish writing this review with the sweet and happy music still ringing in my ears." --Evangelical Studies Bulletin

"...an interesting and stimulating treatment of Edwards and the uniqueness of his theocentric vision."--Theological Studies
