Jonathan Edwards Congress in Australia

JECRhys Bezzant is organizing a "Jonathan Edwards Congress," August 24-28, 2015 at Ridley Melbourne, Australia. Here is the announcement for this event:

In collaboration with the JEC at Yale and drawing on the scholarship and fellowship of Jonathan Edwards Centers in the US, Germany, Hungary, Benelux, Poland, South Africa, Brazil, Japan and Australia, we invite academics, pastors and interested enthusiasts to make this occasion a priority in their forward planning.

The congress will highlight the global impact of Edwards and the eighteenth century revivals, and explore the ways in which his texts and teachings are received in the contemporary world. We hope that each continent will be represented at JEDCON 2105.

The list of speakers at this conference includes an impressive assortment of religious scholars:

  • Ken Minkema (Jonathan Edwards Center, Yale University)
