520    It has long been thought that Edwards's polemical 
       arguments were aimed against Arminianism - a doctrine that
       denied the Calvinist idea of predestination. In this book,
       Gerald McDermott shows that Edwards's real target was a 
       larger and more influential one, namely deism - the belief
       in a creator God who does not intervene in His Creation. 
       To Edwards's mind, deism was the logical conclusion of 
       most, if not all, schemes of divinity that appropriated 
       Enlightenment tenets. McDermott argues that Edwards was an
       inclusivist who came to realize that salvation was open to
       peoples beyond the hearing of the Christian gospel.
