America's Theologian

A Recommendation of Jonathan Edwards

Robert W. Jenson

This provocative study of the life and work of Jonathan Edwards argues that although Edwards was very much a figure of the Enlightenment, he was also a discerning critic of it, able to use Enlightenment thought in his theology without yielding to its mechanistic and individualistic tendencies. Edward's radical position stood as a corrective to the overall impact of the Enlightenment on America.
