Dr. Ronald Story of the University of Massachusetts Amherst (emeritus) is becoming a leading light in the field of Edwards studies. In the past few years alone, he has published two books on what he calls the “other” Edwards, the Edwards of love, social justice, and concern for those in need. (See our booknotes on these volumes: Jonathan Edwards and the Gospel of Love and The Other Jonathan Edwards). Now, Story is using Edwards, along with Pope Francis I, to promote creation care in our twenty-first century world. Here is a recent lecture Story gave in Amherst on the subject–rather timely in the wake of the climate summit held in Paris.
