Format: Hardcover
Jonathan Edwards may have been the first theologian to attempt what we now call "Biblical Theology" as compared with "Systematic." He intended to write, "a body of divinity in an entire new method, being thrown into the form of a history; considering the affair of Christian Theology, as the whole of it, in each part, stands in reference to the great work of redemption by Jesus Christ... particularly considering all parts of the grand scheme, in their historical order." Alas, he died before he was able to complete this "body of divinity," and what we have is the sermons he preached from which he intended to develop a more thorough theology.

What we do have is breathtaking. It is the biblical counterpart to his philosophical The End for Which God Created the World. Where the latter is a tightly woven argument showing that God's own glory is the ultimate end in the creation of the world, this work shows how that purpose has been worked out throughout all of history. Where the former shows Edwards's unparalleled analytic and theological abilities, this work puts on display how thoroughly biblical his mind was. He was much more than America's greatest philosopher; his mind was saturated with scripture to a degree that most will never experience.

The book is split into 3 sections: "From the Fall of Man to the Incarnation of Christ," "From the Incarnation to His Resurrection," and "From the Resurrection to the End of the World." I found all three parts to be enlightening, but particularly the first two which deal specifically with Biblical history.

The book reads much more easily than his philosophical works.

Jonathan Edwards is widely regarded as one of the greatest minds in the history of American theology. This book shows his erudition, along with his pastoral heart and love of Scripture. This is a great Biblical survey. It could be used for Bible studies or for personal devotions.
