Jonathan Edwards & the Church: George Marsden

Jonathan Edwards and the Scientific Revolution


Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
November 2 | ATO Chapel, 1-2:30 pm

Edwards’s creative insights benefited much from Isaac Newton’s natural philosophy and the resultant scientific and technological advances of the English Enlightenment. Edwards was deeply enamored with natural philosophy, and he warmly embraced its new discoveries. He saw within it striking implications for revitalizing theology, which resulted in both scientific and radical theological innovation from which we might still glean today.

This lecture is free and open to the public.
