The Theology of Jonathan Edwards
August 17 - August 21
Join one of the world’s leading authorities on Jonathan Edwards for a five-day intensive that charts the contours of his life and thought. Professor Oliver Crisp will induct students to Edwards’ view of creation and its consummation, divine and human freedom, original sin, the person and work of Christ. Due to COVID-19 restrictions on international travel, this unit will be conducted via Zoom. As with all of BST’s postgraduate units, The Theology of Jonathan Edwards may be audited or taken for credit.
