I am pleased to announce the publication of a new work on the theology of Jonathan Edwards entitled, The Miscellanies Companion, with a chapter entitled "Edwards on Glory as the End of Creation" contributed by yours truly.
From Amazon.com: "The Miscellanies Companion is a product of JESociety's "Miscellanies Project." Essays were contributed by an international body of scholars hailing from East Asia, Europe, the UK, and North America. The contributions canvas a wide range of topics contained in Edwards' "Miscellanies," including Trinitarianism, Millennialism, Reason and Revelation, Evangelism, Happiness, Salvation, and more.
"The Miscellanies Project" and the Companion are part of the Visual Edwards created by Robert L. Boss. A unique contribution to Jonathan Edwards studies, the Visual Edwards is a software project that maps Edwards' writings, volumes 1-26 of the Yale critical edition, and provides a new view of America's theologian. The Visual Edwards is, as it were, an advanced computational material which can be stretched, bent, and zoomed to direct the scholar to areas of interest. As a cartographic tool, it grants the reader visual access to Edwards in his own words.
A team-oriented project to visually unlock Edwards' notebooks, and map intricate connections in his thought, "The Miscellanies Project" and the print Companion are first steps toward the Himalayan task of visualizing Jonathan Edwards -- an ongoing project seemingly without end. To echo Edwards' sentiment in "Types," "there is room for persons to be learning more and more ... to the end of the world without discovering all."
