This book offers a broad-based study of Jonathan Edwards as a religious thinker. Much attention has been given to Edwards in relation to his Puritan and Calvinist forebears. McClymond, however, examines Edwards in relation to his eighteenth-century intellectual context. In each of six chapters, he contextualizes and interprets some text or issue in Edwards within the emergent post-Lockean, post-Newtonian culture of the English-speaking world of the 1700s. Among the topics considered are spiritual perception, metaphysics, contemplation, ethics and morality, and apologetics.Table of ContentsList of Abbreviations Introduction: Edwards as an "Artful Theologian" 1 Apprehension: Spiritual Perception in Jonathan Edwards 2 Speculation: The Theocentric Metaphysics of The Mind 3 Contemplation: The Spirituality of the Personal Narrative and Diary 4 Valuation: Ethics and Divinity in End of Creation 5 Narration: Drama and Discernment in History of Redemption 6 Persuasion: Edwards as a Christian Apologist Conclusion: The Religious Outlook in Edwards Notes Bibliography IndexREVIEWS"Winner of the Brewer Prize of the American Society of Church History, this fresh approach to the theology of Jonathan Edwards avoids the narrow specialization of recent studies, yielding a sense of the whole rather than a glimpse of fragments. ...
