While most of Edwards' theological works may be said to be primarily soteriological – relating to salvation, sin, and human nature – throughout all his writings the central importance of the Spirit of God at work in the heart of the believer is abundantly clear. As such, the Divine Nature is implicitly, if not explicitly, a fundamental doctrine. Edwards treats this doctrine directly in this short unpublished treatise. He follows the Augustinian tradition in describing the Holy Spirit principally in terms of Love – love between the Father and Son, and between God and the believer.
