Jonathan Dickinson

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents excerpts from Reasonableness of Christianity, in Four Sermons (1732), written by Jonathan Dickinson in response to John Locke's Reasonableness of Christianity, as Delivered in the Scriptures (1695). In this work, Dickinson presented his template for Christianity, emphasizing faith working with reason. He wanted to balance the power of human reason with divine inspiration and to defend traditional Calvinistic doctrines such as the depravity of human nature while also demonstrating that such beliefs were compatible with the newly emerging age of reason.

Keywords:   faith, Reasonableness of Christianity, in Four Sermons, Jonathan Dickinson, John Locke, Christianity, human reason, divine inspiration, human nature
