Stahle systematizes and summarizes Edwardss biblically grounded thought in contemporary language and makes Edwards accessible to pastors, students, and church study groups. Edwardss conceptions of the Trinity are explained in detail and shown to be the basis for the rest of his theology, including his ideas about sin, salvation, holiness, the purpose of history, Scripture, revivals of religion, heaven and hell, and the church.

Reflection and study questions are provided to enrich comprehension and demonstrate the relevance of Edwardss theology for contemporary life. The wealth of this Puritans personal piety and intellectual brilliance is no longer beyond the reach of twenty-first century Christians.With The Great Work of Providence, Rachel Stahle provides a helpful and practical summary of Jonathan Edwardss theology for busy pastors, church leaders, and laypeople who recognize the importance of being theologically literate (especially in a culture that seems to see no need for deeper theological study) but do not have the time needed for diving deeply into the writings of Edwards.

In the end, the book whets the appetite for more theological reflection and more Edwards.--Rev.
