   schema:description ""Focusing on Jonathan Edwards's biblical writings, this study proposes that Edwards's biblical interpretation is the key to understanding his broader engagement with critical thought and provides a unifying thread within his theological work. The vast but little-known biblical writings of Edwards (1703-1758) show him to have been thoroughly engaged with critical historical methods of interpretation. British society was consumed with the problems of biblical criticism from the middle of the seventeenth century, particularly in relation to church-state issues. It had been considered a late-nineteenth-century phenomenon in American religious history, but Robert E. Brown shows that its influence began much earlier. Brown traces the impact of this revolution in biblical interpretation to nearly every area of Edwards's intellectual career--epistemology, historiography, natural theology, typology, natural science, comparative religion, constructive theology, and public discourse. This engagement resulted in a subtle but distinct transformation of Edwards's understanding of the biblical narratives and their relation to the new scientific modes of inquiry, anticipating similar developments in nineteenth-century American religious thought"--Publisher description."@en ;
