Oliver Crisp at Theology on Tap

Oliver Crisp will be speaking at Theology on Tap at the Camp House at 7pm on Tuesday, October 29. This talk will be in cooperation with the LeRoy Martin Distinguished Lecture series at UTC.

Below is the announcement from Cole Hamilton, who organizes the Theology on Tap series.

The next ToT is just a little more than a week away (Tuesday, Oct. 29th).  It's a special one as it will be co-sponsored by UTC's LeRoy Martin Distinguished Lectureship. To add to the awesomeness, the first hundred to the door at 7pm will receive drink vouchers.  That means FREE BEER and FREE COFFEE!!  See the Facebook page here.

Here's a little bit about the talk and our speaker:

You may know Jonathan Edwards as a leader of the Great Awakening and for his famous sermon, “Sinners in the Hands of Angry God,” and consequently think of him as just another Puritan. Edwards is, however, widely regarded today as America’s greatest theologian. Despite being in so many ways the godfather of evangelicalism, Edwards was a highly original thinker, in fact, founding the philosophy of idealism in America. His work in theology was no less original, whether his treatment of the Trinity, original sin, and even the most interesting innovation, his belief in “continual creation.” What else should we expect of a man who went to Yale at age thirteen?

At the next Theology on Tap, Dr. Oliver Crisp will explore Jonthan Edward’s creative and peculiar theology in his talk, “Was Jonathan Edwards Theologically Orthodox?

More about our speaker: Dr. Crisp is professor of systematic theology at Fuller Theological Seminary.
