2017 Graduate Student Paper Competition Winner

We are pleased to announce the winner of this year’s Jonathan Edwards graduate student paper competition.

Kerley-photoWe received papers this year from graduate students all over the world. The competition was stiff. But the winner of this year’s prize is Tyler Kerley, an MDiv Candidate at Beeson Divinity School, in Birmingham, AL.

Tyler’s paper is entitled, “The Beauty of the Cross: Retrieving Penal Substitutionary Atonement on Jonathan Edwards’ Aesthetic Basis.”

His paper appropriates Edwardsian atonement in order to respond to recent criticisms of the penal substitutionary motif within systematic theology. By placing Edwards against Anselm’s Cur Deus Homo? and John Stott’s The Cross of Christ, it becomes clear that Edwards has an alternative vision of the atonement. Edwardsian atonement deflects the criticisms of penal substitutionary atonement made by postmodern theologians, such as those stated in Mark Baker and Joel Green’s The Scandal of the Cross. This paper, therefore, represents a gesture toward the wealth of untapped, potential resources in Edwards’ thought for broader concerns in postmodern philosophy and theology.

Tyler will receive a check for $1,000 and publication of his essay soon in Jonathan Edwards Studies.

Congratulations, Tyler, on a job well done!
