Jonathan Edwards and Scripture provides a fresh look at the important, burgeoning field of Edwards and the Bible, offering a needed corrective in Edwards research. It gives careful attention to Edwards' biblical exegesis, considers it in the context of early Anglo-American history, and compares it with that of other interpreters of Scripture.
