The Theology of Jonathan Edwards

Oxford University Press

Edwards's thinking is recognizably Reformed, but with a difference. He was irreverent toward Calvin, expected to find new theological light as he went along, and more often than not enjoyed tinkering with if not transforming his received Puritan and Reformed traditions. At the same time, Edwards thought in Reformed categories and considered himself an apologist for the Reformed tradition. This chapter examines both his concordance with Calvin and later Reformed thinkers, and the points where he diverged from and developed earlier Reformed thinking. Finally, it compares him to two other Reformed theologians—Friedrich Daniel Ernst Schleiermacher and Karl Barth.
