Oliver Crisp

Oliver Crisp has been called the most important interpreter of Jonathan Edwards in this generation. His newest book, Jonathan Edwards among the Theologians, brings key aspects of his thought into dialogue with other Christian thinkers such as Anselm, Jacob Arminius, John Girardeau, and Edwards's own disciple, Joseph Bellamy. This book engages Edwards as a constructive theologian with serious philosophical interests, and it presents new research on key themes in his theology. With most studies of Edwards limited to the field of historical theology, this philosophical-theological account is a truly original work on the most important American theologian.

Jonathan Edwards among the Theologians

For readers inclined to judge a book by its cover, know that the stakes are slightly higher with an Oliver Crisp book. Crisp is an artist as well as a leading Reformed theologian, and he creates art for the covers of each of his books. Thus Jonathan Edwards among the Theologians is Crisp's portrait of Edwards in more ways than one.

Crisp is professor of systematic theology at Fuller Theological Seminary, where he has taught since 2011. Before beginning his theological studies at the University of Aberdeen, and later King's College at the University of London, Crisp earned a diploma in fine art. He is the author of numerous books on Reformed theology and theologians, he is the co-editor of Oxford Studies in Systematic Theology, and he is the co-founder and organizer of the Los Angeles Theology Conference, whose proceedings are published annually.
