about

This is a study of how American theologian Jonathan Edwards (1703-58) battled deist arguments about revelation and God's fairness to non-Christians. Author Gerald McDermott argues that Edwards was preparing before his death a sophisticated theological response to Enlightenment religion thatwas unparalleled in the eighteenth century and surprisingly generous toward non-Christian traditions.
