Abstract

Kyle C. Strobel (ed.), The Ecumenical Edwards: Jonathan Edwards and the Theologians (Farnham, UK: Ashgate, 2015), v + 257 p., $ 110.00 (ISBN 9781409461104).Anyone who has spent more than a cursory amount of time immersed in Jonathan Edwards’s thought cannot deny that they are in the presence of a great modern theological mind. Indeed, the more time one spends, the more enchanting the captivating entanglements of his system appear. Edwards himself loved both web imagery and the image of being “swallowed by God” to describe the way in which the truth of God’s revelation can lure the human into the only reality there is. His own theology confronts the reader as a kind of web or thicket, the beauties and intricacies of which are revealed the more deeply one gives oneself over to it.
