Jonathan Edwards, one of America’s greatest thinkers, was not only a theologian and philosopher but a preacher. So how did Edwards exegete the Scriptures? Can a puritanical devotee of the historical-grammatical method approve Edwards’s Puritan preaching? Owen Strachan, author of the brand new Edwards daily devotional Always in God’s Hands (Tyndale Momentum), is the right man to answer these questions. Strachan is immersed in the world of pastor-theologians as associate professor of Christian theology at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he also directs the Center for Public Theology and The Residency PhD. Strachan expounds the strengths and weaknesses of Edwards’ exegesis, discusses hermeneutics more broadly, and shares his personal hopes for readers of Always in God’s Hands: Day by Day in the Company of Jonathan Edwards.
