The Jonathan Edwards Center at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School is pleased to announce a new lecture series on Edwards’ international reception, entitled “The Global Edwards.” With the generous support of the Yullin Church of South Korea, especially its pastor, Nam-Joon Kim, this new series will bring to campus the leading Edwards scholars working from outside the United States.
Pastor Nam-Joon Kim
While Jonathan Edwards has long been recognized as the United States’ preeminent theologian, and one of the leading influences in the U.S. church, his international renown and global reception is less recognized. That is quickly changing, however, as represented in the new global Jonathan Edwards centers initiated from Yale and in several publications tied to Trinity’s Edwards Center, such as David W. Kling and Douglas A. Sweeney, eds.,Jonathan Edwards at Home and Abroad: Historical Memories, Cultural Movements, Global Horizons (Columbia: University of South Carolina Press, 2003), and Oliver D. Crisp and Douglas A. Sweeney, eds., After Jonathan Edwards: The Courses of the New England Theology (New York: Oxford University Press, 2012).
In an effort to galvanize this international scholarship, we are therefore pleased to announce “The Global Edwards” series. It will feature international scholars engaged in the increasingly global conversation on Edwards’ life and influence.
All these lectures will be free and open to the public and posted on our Edwards Center website.
