About the Author:

Dr. William M. Schweitzer received his PhD from Edinburgh University, UK, and is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church of America, USA. He serves as the church planting minister of Gateshead Presbyterian Church in Northern England.

Review:

`The concept of communion is central to Edwards' thought. Believers partaking in the eucharist shadow forth a greater communion of Christ and the church; regeneration is achieving communion with the Holy Spirit; and the very nature of God is communicative. God seeks to communicative Godself to creation and to perceiving being. This "unifying factor," William Schweitzer demonstrates in this new appraisal, helps to "explain Edwards": his doctrine of God and the Trinity, his theology of revelation, and the harmony of Scripture, nature, and history, all of which informed Edwards' "overarching project" of elucidating God's sovereign work of redemption.' - Kenneth Minkema, The Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale University, USA. -- Kenneth Minkema This is an important book, not because it offers a penetrating analysis of a specific theme found in Jonathan Edwards's theology, but because it presents a very readable overview of Edwards's entire theological project. William Schweitzer's work is an admirable study which seeks to ascertain the overarching scaffolding that frames Edwards's thought. The book is clearly written and easy to understand. I recommend it to anyone seeking to grasp the central themes animating Edwards's theology ... It is eminently readable and a great place for theologians, pastors, and Christians to begin grappling with Edwards's theology as a whole. -- Robert W. Caldwell, III, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, USA * Journal of Theological Studies (Vol. 64.2) *

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Over the past half century, there has been a proliferation of scholarship on the great American theologian Jonathan Edwards. However, the vast majority of this output confines itself to the details of his work. With some welcome exceptions, the forest has often been missed for the trees. In this ground breaking study William Schweitzer presents a new reading of Edwards: He starts with the question what is distinctive in Edwards theology? The answer comes in Edwards insight into Trinitarian life. God is eternally communicative of his knowledge, love, and joy among the Three Persons of the Trinity, and this divine communicativeness was for Edwards the explanation for why God created the universe. More specifically, however, Edwards believed that God s communication carries with it the Trinitarian hallmark of harmony. This hallmark is not always east to discern, even for the regenerate. Edwards lifelong project-as demonstrated by the common purpose of all three unfinished Great Works -was to interpret the harmony found in and among the several media of revelation.
