Here’s some cool news: the Jonathan Edwards Center at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School now has an online presence: http://jecteds.org.
Visitors to the site will find information about the center, details on upcoming lectures, and a regularly updated blog which includes brief book reviews by Center Director Doug Sweeney. Those interested in Edwards studies will want to take note of the first two lectures held for the JEC at TEDS. George Marsden of the University of Notre Dame will speak on “Jonathan Edwards for the Twenty-first Century” on Nov. 3, 2010 at TEDS. Richard Muller of Calvin Theological Seminary will speak on “Jonathan Edwards and the Absence of Free Choice” on September 29, 2010 at TEDS.
Here’s a snatch from the “About” section that will give you a feel for the center:
The Jonathan Edwards Center is a ministry of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Located on the campus of TEDS (Deerfield, Illinois), it exists to promote and serve the conversation unfolding on Edwards, America’s preeminent pastor, theologian, and philosopher. It has a special burden to engage the life of the church, though it is engaged on multiple levels with scholarly study of Edwards and his world.
The JEC at TEDS will definitely reach a scholarly audience, as one can see, but a major part of its mission is to engage the life of church people with the riches of the Edwardsean ministry and theology. Visit the site, sign up for the blog, and join the center as we seek to deepen our appreciation for the great God Edwards worshipped.
