Creation's Beauty as Revelation
Toward a Creational Theology of Natural Beauty
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Edwards' creative work gives needed nuance to the burgeoning frontier of beauty's role in aesthetic theology. His contribution, namely that beauty is a docent leading us into the divine, certainly has its place, and his critique of Augustine's theology is as stimulating in perspective as it is well-researched in substance."
--Christian T. George, Oklahoma Baptist University
"It is rare to find a theologian who is both willing and able to triangulate the study of theology, philosophy, and aesthetics, and even more rare to discover that task done with depth and care. Edwards has provided renewed impetus to take beauty seriously as a category for theological reflection. This is not a call to reject propositional thinking, but to consider the created context in and from which our thinking progresses. Here we are pressed to recognize that in doing theology beauty is more than implied--it is required."
--David Hogg, Samford University
