Overview

Now more than two centuries after his death, the specter of Jonathan Edwards continues to loom large over the evangelical world. In celebration of the tercentenary of Edwards's birth, the thirteen essays in The Legacy of Jonathan Edwards examine the vision, theology, and influence of this theological giant within the context of contemporary American Protestantism. According to the editors, "The essays in this volume . . . reveal that Edwards has something to say to a variety of disciplines, including theology, philosophy, and history."

The first part of the book focuses on the vision of Jonathan Edwards. Chapters discuss the typological Edwardsian understanding of redemption as encompassing heaven, earth, and hell; his zealous missionary work to Native Americans; his Christ-centered preaching; and his notions of Christian spirituality.

Explicating Edwards's theology, the second section seeks to uncover its significance for the contemporary theological scene. Essays show how Edwards responded to the materialist currents of the Enlightenment, how Edwards might respond to open theism, what Edwards can teach us about doing apologetics, and some difficulties in agreeing with Edwards that America is a nation in covenant with God.

The third section looks at how Edwards's theology contributed mightily to the theological and ecclesiastical debates of the nineteenth century. A final section includes two chapters offering personal observations on the world of Edwardsian scholarship and a bibliographic essay.

The Legacy of Jonathan Edwards fills the need for a reappropriation for a new age of the theological, historical, and philosophical contributions of a theological giant. It will serve experienced Edwards readers as well as introduce new ones to his legacy.
