ABSTRACT

Jonathan Edwards’s diverse range of commitments and the partial nature of much of his theology lends itself to an array of competing claims regarding the nature and trajectory of his dogmatic commitments. In the following a case is made for seeing Edwards’s work as an incipient form of Third Article Theology (TAT). A definition of TAT is first provided, after which Edwards’s pneumatological theology is shown to be in continuity with contemporary criteria for TAT, before two central elements of Edwards’s TAT are presented, namely, his SpiritChristology and doctrine of theosis.
