“He was pouring in a flood of light upon mankind, which their eyes, as yet, were too feeble to bear.” Edwards’ vision of a substantively, radically, theocentric universe provides us with hands-on tools for contemporary apologetics, pastoral counsel, and theological engagement in ecclesia and academia. “In this age of light and inquiry” we too need to see that “there is not nor ever will be any man in the world Enlightened but by Jesus,” so to free us from a “selfie” age to a God-centered life.
