The Trinitarian Vision of Jonathan Edwards and David Coffey

Steven M. Studebaker
ISBN: 9781604977936

This book addresses these areas of evangelical theology by drawing on a well-known figure in the evangelical tradition—Jonathan Edwards (1703–1758)—and a contemporary Roman Catholic theologian—David Coffey (1934–). Though they may seem theological worlds apart, their use of a common trinitarian theology—the Augustinian mutual love model—led them to similar conclusions on Christology, pneumatology, and the theology of grace. Their common trinitarian vision provides resources to develop a transformational and relational vision of redemption and an inclusivist theology of religions within the evangelical tradition.
