Editorial Reviews

"Sweeney focuses on Taylor's theology, which he knows inside-out and which he lays out in an articulate fashion...Taylor had a set of brains to marvel at, and Sweeney is at his best in explicating his vision. Sweeney also emphasizes, rightly, that Taylor thought of himself as carrying on thetradition of Edwards, and demonstrates at length not just the quality of Taylor's ideas but the way in which Taylor tried to think the tradition out of some of the troubles it had gotten itself into in its 75-year commentary on Edwards."--Books and Culture
