From the Publisher
"An invitation to sample the profundity and versatility of America's greatest theologian--the sources from which he drew, the theologians from whom he diverged, and the creative theological solutions he proposed. There is never a 'last word,' of course, but at certain points in time indispensable resources appear. The Theology of Jonathan Edwards is one of them." --Church History
"A truly impressive work. It is remarkable to find a comprehensive and insightful guide to all of Edwards's theology in one place and in a volume that is a pleasure to read."
--George Marsden, author of Jonathan Edwards: A Life
"Comprehensive, learned, and accessible--unquestionably the best starting place for anyone wanting to grapple with the ideas of America's greatest theologian."
--Alister E. McGrath, Professor of Theology, Ministry, and Education, King's College, London
"Scholarship on Jonathan Edwards has in recent years risen to a great flood. Yet despite heightened interest, there have been very few efforts to treat Edwards' formidable theology as a whole. With this book Michael McClymond and Gerald McDermott meet that pressing need and meet it very well. The book is clear, comprehensive, balanced, nuanced, and authoritative--in a word, a splendid volume about one of the truly great thinkers in all of American history."
--Mark Noll, Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame
"Jonathan Edwards is not just an American theologian but a man who has profoundly influenced thinking about doctrinal questions and revival practice all over the world. This volume offers a series of forty-five short chapters that together provide a comprehensive account of his convictions and legacy down to contemporary appreciation of his thought. Edwards emerges as one of the most creative theologians the universal church has ever produced."
--David Bebbington, Professor of History, University of Stirling
"With interest in Jonathan Edwards at an unprecedented high around the world, The Theology of Jonathan Edwards is a truly useful and unmatched digest of his times, thought, and influence. Edwards is one of the most-written about religious figures of the eighteenth-century, and with such a mountain of literature to navigate, this volume provides the single best entry point into Edwards' writings and ideas for the specialist and general reader alike."
--Kenneth P. Minkema, Executive Editor and Director of the Works of Jonathan Edwards, Yale University
"Draws on the recently completed 73-volume edition of the writings of the American theologian (1703-58)."--The Chronicle Review
"Informative and illuminating...this volume is absolutely necessary for any future scholarly work on Edwards...Essential."--CHOICE
"An engaging analysis of Edwards' thought filled with valuable historical observations and careful explanation of Edwards' theology. It would be hard to imagine a better introduction written for both specialist and non-specialist interested in Edwards' spirituality and profound insights on Scripture than McCylmond and McDermott's outstanding contribution."--The Banner of Truth
"This is indeed a definitive and comprehensive compendium of Edwards's theology...The excellent tandem of McClymond and McDermott has produced a standard and indispensable reading...I finish writing writing this review with the sweet and happy music still ringing in my ears."--Evangelical Studies Bulletin
"McDermott and McClymond have done a great service for scholars and laypeople interested in Edwards by writing forty-five chapters in which they have provided syntheses of various aspects to Edwards's life, thought, and legacy." --Exploring the Study of Religious History
