  • Editors' Introduction

    • Authors: The Editors
      Abstract: Welcome to the fall 2021 issue of Jonathan Edwards Studies. This issue presents three important articles that speak to ongoing issues in the appraisal of Edwards' thought by applying current categories in philosophy and exegesis. In our lead article, Ken Miyagi utilizes Abram Van Engen's Sympathetic Puritans to see how that rubric, as enunciated in Edwards' view of the affections, helps us to understand his social ethics. Next, continuing his fruitful engagement with Edwards' End in Creation, Walter Schultz qualifies assertions about Edwards being a determinist by demonstrating three senses of contingency that appear in the late dissertation. And finally, Cameron Schweitzer enters the rich discussion of Edwards as a biblical expositor, countering a previous argument, advanced by a contributor to this journal, about Edwards' "feminine ecclesiology" as found in the "Blank Bible." Two reviews of recent important monographs in the field round out the issue. But before you move on, gentle reader, your humble editors bid you take a moment to pause over the tribute below and remember that scholarship is an endeavor in which we stand on the shoulders of previous generations.

  • Jonathan Edwards’s View of Sympathy as it Relates to His
           Socio-ethical Perspective

    • Authors: Ken Miyagi
      Pages: 100 - 116
      Abstract: This article will discuss how Edwards’s view of affection played a significant role in his social thought and actions by investigating Jonathan Edwards’s idea of sympathy. In doing so, it will employ the seventeenth-century Puritans’ socioreligious view of such feelings that is meticulously researched in Abram C. Van Engen’s, Sympathetic Puritans: Calvinist Fellow Feeling in Early New England (2015). Edwards’s thought of sympathy was expounded as a vital concept for building community cohesion in his sermons and treatises, such as Religious Affections and Nature of True Virtue. This article will explore such a notion in both Edwards’s affectional and philosophical terms, and then it will shed new light on his social ethics through demonstrating Edwards’s view of sympathy that was developed in a tangle of the Reformed Puritan tradition and the Enlightenment thoughts.

  • Contingency in the Late Metaphysics of Jonathan Edwards

    • Authors: Walter J. Schultz
      Pages: 117 - 149
      Abstract: Jonathan Edwards is often portrayed as being a thoroughgoing determinist, thus precluding every sort of contingency. This judgment arises most often—and justifiably so— from what he asserts in his Freedom of the Will (1754). A contrary judgment emerges, however, when his dissertation Concerning the End for which God Created the World (completed in 1755) is closely considered by itself. 2 This paper describes and then shows how Edwards’ argumentation entails that the physical universe and its constituent physical systems are contingent in three senses: freedom to choose, existential, and synchronic.

  • Does Edwards have a “Thoroughgoing ‘Feminine’ Ecclesiology'” a
           Response to Benjamin Wayman in a Reconsideration of the Evidence in the
           Blank Bible

    • Authors: Cameron Schweitzer
      Pages: 150 - 179
      Abstract: Jonathan Edwards was a man mighty in the Scriptures. Douglas Sweeney, a modern pioneer of the voluminous forest that is Edwards’ exegetical corpus, states that Edwards’ engagement with the Bible “occupied the lion’s share of his time,” and was the “scholarly work which he took most seriously.” A “new wind” has begun to blow across the field of Edwardsean studies, bringing with it new students of those long-neglected pages of Edwards’s exegetical reflections.This movement is beginning to reshape the distorted, twentieth-century portrait of Northampton’s Pastor: a trapped, tortured cleric who secretly devoted his mental energies to scientific, philosophical, and psychological musings, pining for the day when such work could consume his time.3 These authors have begun to appreciate, therefore, the historical Edwards, who was a typical minister from “a ministerial family in eighteenth-century New England,” and “unapologetically, undeniably, and deliberately devoted” to understanding the Bible.”
