God as disposition and beauty

Belden C. Lane writing about the theology of Jonathan Edwards:

He preferred to describe God more dynamically as a "disposition" to communicate love.  It is truer, he would have said, to think of God as a communicative "act" than as an existing "thing."  God is not so much a self-contained and static entity as an impulsive beauty delighting more than anything else in sharing itself. . . .  God's essence is a "disposition" to multiply the enjoyment of beauty.
