Jonathan Edwards and Deification: Reconciling Theosis and the Reformed Tradition

For the Olive Tree Bible App

Title: Jonathan Edwards and Deification: Reconciling Theosis and the Reformed Tradition
Publisher: IVP Academic
Author: James R Salladin

Description

The doctrine of deification or theosis is typically associated with the Eastern Orthodox tradition. Indeed, the language of participation in the divine nature as a way to understand salvation often sounds like strange music in the ears of Western Christians despite passages like 2 Peter 1:4 where it appears. However, recent scholarship has argued that the theologies of some of the most prominent figures in the history of the Western church, including Martin Luther, John Calvin, and John Wesley, share more in common with deification than has been acknowledged.

In this New Explorations in Theology volume, theologian James Salladin considers the role of deification in the theology of another well-known Western theologian: Jonathan Edwards. In addition, he reflects upon the question of how Edwards's soteriology compares with the rest of the broader Reformed tradition.

Here, we discover how Edwards's theology affirms what it means for sinners to be brought into the hands of a loving God.

Featuring new monographs with cutting-edge research, New Explorations in Theology provides a platform for constructive, creative work in the areas of systematic, historical, philosophical, biblical, and practical theology.
