Edwardsean Natural Theology

Alister McGrath notes Edwards as an example of a theologian who employs “affective imagination” in a correlation of doctrine and natural theology:

… Edwards … perhaps America’s greatest Christian theologian, developed an approach to theology which at the very least safeguarded the affective aspects of faith (many would say emphasized those aspects), especially in his reflections on the world of nature … As is clear from Edwards’s approach, a Christian spirituality is intertwined with and informed by a Christian theology, even if their points of focus are not the same.
