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.

Editorial Reviews

  Douglas A. Sweeney
—Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"Oliver Crisp is leading the way among constructive theologians who are engaging Jonathan Edwards as a serious interlocutor. This book showcases Crisp at his finest, never parroting Edwards’s teaching but, rather, following his model of occasional, contextual, and critical adaptation of the insights of the past in relation to the challenges we face in the present. Edwards still has much to offer even the most contemporary theologians."

 Kenneth P. Minkema
— Jonathan Edwards Center, Yale University
"This welcome volume brings together the most important essays on Jonathan Edwards by the most important of his interpreters in this generation. Crisp defines and tackles pressing issues in Edwards studies in an expert and game-changing way."
