In 1734, at the beginning of the Connecticut Valley revival that ushered in the Great Awakening, Jonathan Edwards preached on the controversial doctrine of justification. Critics found 'great fault' with him for 'meddling' with it, and he 'was ridiculed by many elsewhere.' So today, those who engage in discussions about the nature of justification may find themselves the objects of criticism and ridicule, but the subject is a vital one, precisely because it has been and remains divisive. And it is particularly important in understanding Edwards, because his view on justification has been hotly debated. This volume combines informed historical context and contemporary appropriation, with the aim of considering Edwards responsibly and correctly.' What emerges is a balanced assessment of Edwards as an orthodox thinker, yet one with creativity, spice, and derring-do.'
-Kenneth P. Minkema, Executive Editor and Director, Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale University
A significant work that advances the growing scholarship on Jonathan Edwards and contributes to the current debates on justification. These lucid essays demonstrate that the great biblical and Reformation teaching on justification is not a stale, dusty doctrine, but has ramifications for the vitality of the Church and the reform of society.
