The Beauty of the Triune God
The Theological Aesthetics of Jonathan Edwards
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"The Beauty of the Triune God will prove to be a major contribution. It shows convincingly the significance of doctrinal orientation in Edwards' aesthetics as much as the centrality of aesthetics in his doctrinal articulation, weaving his Trinitarian, christological, and eschatological perspectives together to unfold an aesthetics that is truly theological and holistic."
--Carver Yu, President, China Graduate School of Theology
"Louie's study reveals the ways in which Edwards' account of beauty does not emerge as an epiphenomenon of his theological system or as a side-concern. . . . The embeddedness of beauty in the doctrines of the Christian faith . . . is thus a central feature of Edwards' theology, and one that is admirably displayed in this study. This is an important contribution."
--From the foreword by David Fergusson, University of Edinburgh
"Without an understanding and appreciation of the aesthetic dimension of Edwards' theology, the reader will inevitably miss or misunderstand the most important points Edwards has to make. This general point has been recognized by many scholars . . . [but] the fully theological nature of Edwards' aesthetics has been largely ignored. . . . Louie's work seeks to correct this lacuna in Edwards scholarship. And, in my opinion, he does a superb job."
