This time I was writing an essay on Edwards’ idea of the Trinity, which is far more expansive in topic and depth than the 12 pages of original work which Edwards’ Doctrine on the Trinity would suggest.
Really enjoyed the opportunity to dig deep into Edwards’ style of thinking, and his musings, and especially into the breadth of argument on the Trinity, both from Edwards and other scholars.
However, like Edwards concludes, the waters are still a little murky:
‘I am far from pretending to explaining the Trinity so as to render it no longer a mystery. I think it to be the highest and deepest of all divine mysteries still’
— Jonathan Edwards “Discourse on the Trinity”
