Overview

The Christ-centered exegesis of Jonathan Edwards


Jonathan Edwards is remembered for his sermons and works of theology and philosophy--but he has been overlooked as an exegete.

Gilsun Ryu's The Federal Theology of Jonathan Edwards explores how exegesis drove Edwards's focus on the headship of Christ as second Adam--and likewise formed a foundation for his broader theological reasoning and writing, especially on Christ and the covenants. Edwards's distinctive emphases on exegesis, redemptive history, and the harmony of Scripture distinguish him from his Reformed forebears.

Ryu's study will help readers appreciate Edwards's contribution as an exegetically informed Reformed theologian.
