Editorial Reviews

CHARLES E. HAMBRICK-STOWE
A solid and worthy contribution to Jonathan Edwards studies during the three hundredth anniversary of the great pastor theologian’s birth. Wide ranging in its scholarship, yet skillfully focused in its exploration of the eternal role of the Holy Spirit in Edward’s epistemology and apologetics.
William Edgar
Nichols has done us the great service of understanding Edwards, first from his own writings, and second, as an heir to Calvin. He shows the true face of Edwards, whose greatest concern was for God’s glory, even in the right use of reason and confidence in revelation.
HARRY S. STOUT
Underscores Jonathan Edwards’s value for the ages. By focusing on the role of the Holy Spirit in apologetics, Nichols reaffirms Edwards’s traditional faith and his emphasis on revelation over reason. A must read for students of theology and mission.
K. Scott Oliphint
In the volume, Jonathan Edwards speaks his own mind, a mind committed to the wonders of Reformed thought and its application to the church’s defense of the Christian faith. One finishes this book seeing Edwards, following Calvin, as a theologian of the Holy Spirit.
Sam Storms
“I’ve long waited for a clear competent study of Edwards on apologetics and the role of the Spirit. Now it is here. No student of Edwards can afford to overlook Nichols’s superb contribution.”
