Product Description

Jonathan Edwards and Justification brings together a team of internationally reputed Edwards scholars to ask and answer the question: What is Jonathan Edwards's doctrine of justification?

Contributors examine this question from multiple angles that includes Edwards relevance to contemporary debates on justification, Edwards understanding of three principle events within the doctrine, redemption, justification, and regeneration, justification and social involvement, justification and sanctification, and whether or not Edwards held to a justification theory premised upon "by faith alone".

Cutting directly to the most important issues, Jonathan Edwards and Justification helps us look at this seminal Protestant through the eyes of one of America's greatest theologians, and speaks credibly and winsomely to the needs of the church and the academy today.

Endorsements

This superb collection of essays provides insight and guidance not only for understanding the thought of Jonathan Edwards in his historical context, but for wrestling with the current debate regarding the doctrine of justification by faith. This volume will prove to be richly rewarding, theologically engaging, and spiritually edifying for students and scholars alike. Josh Moody is to be commended for bringing together this outstanding group of scholars for such a timely and thoughtful exploration of this important subject. I highly recommend this book.
-David S. Dockery,
President, Union University

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.
-Dennis P. Hollinger,
President & Colman M Mockler Distinguished Professor of Christian Ethics, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary Specifications
