Product Description

In marks of Saving Grace, a volume from the Reformed Academic Dissertation series, Eric Lehner examines Edwards's use of philosophical, historical, and biblical sources in Religious Affections and demonstrates that Edwards's theology in this key work is governed by Scripture, rather than by historical, metaphysical, or epistemological considerations.

Lehner calls into question the proliferation of proposals that suggest Edwards's theology is driven by central interpretive ideals, socioeconomic forces, philosophical models, or other nonbiblical considerations. He uncovers the shortfalls of secular interpretations of Edwards and advances an interpretation that endeavors to understand him in terms of his faith, rather than apart from it.

About the Series

P&R's Reformed Academic Dissertation (RAD) series consists of top-tier dissertations (Ph.D., Th.D., D.Min., and Th.M.) that advance biblical and theological scholarship by making distinctive contributions in the areas of theology, ethics, biblical studies, apologetics, and counseling. Dissertations in the RAD series are carefully selected, on the basis of strong recommendations by the authors' supervisors and examiners and by internal readers, to be part of this collection. Each selected dissertation provides clear, fresh, and engaging insights about significant theological issues.
