Jonathan Edwards: A Reformed Arminian Engagement provides a fresh perspective on the theology of one of the most influential thinkers in American Christianity.

Overview

Jonathan Edwards: A Reformed Arminian Engagement provides a fresh perspective on the theology of one of the most influential thinkers in American Christianity. Famous—or perhaps infamous—for his image of “Sinners in the hands of an angry God,” Jonathan Edwards is closely associated with Calvinist thought. However, this book brings together a collection of essays that reconsiders his theology from the vantage point of Reformed Arminianism.

Through a critical engagement with Edwards' thought, the authors of this book offer alternative expressions of fidelity to the early Reformed confessions without the deterministic metaphysics associated with Calvinism. This approach provides a unique opportunity for constructive theological dialogue among Calvinists, Arminians, and other varieties of non-Calvinists.

By exploring Edwards' theology from a Reformed Arminian perspective, readers are invited to think more deeply about the hard lines drawn between confessional traditions and traditional theological systems that too often characterize the Calvinist-Arminian debate. This book challenges readers to consider the ways in which different theological perspectives can enrich their understanding of faith and deepen their engagement with Christians of other confessions.

Written with clarity and insight, Jonathan Edwards: A Reformed Arminian Engagement is an essential resource for anyone seeking to engage with the thought of this influential figure in American Christianity.
