Everyday Glory: Jonathan Edwards and the question of natural revelation

Does God reveal himself not only through Scripture but also through nature?  Jonathan Edwards said Yes and Karl Barth said No.  This lecture will explore typology in all the world and the theological debate over natural theology.

Gerald R. McDermott joined the Beeson Divinity school faculty in 2015 as the Anglican Professor of Divinity, and teaches in the areas of history and doctrine, world religions, Anglican studies and Jonathan Edwards. He is the author, co-author or editor of many books, including A Trinitarian Theology of Religions(with Harold Netland),  Jonathan Edwards Confronts the GodsThe New Christian Zionism: Fresh Perspectives on Israel and the LandIsrael Matters: Why Christians Must Think Differently about the People and the LandCancer: A Medical and Spiritual Guide for Patients and their Families, and Famous Stutterers. His academic research focus has been three-fold: Jonathan Edwards, Christian understandings of other religions, and the meaning of Israel. As a renowned Edwards scholar, McDermott has produced six books on Edwards; his Theology of Jonathan Edwards (coauthored with Michael McClymond) won Christianity Today’s 2013 award for Top Book in Theology/Ethics. Before coming to Beeson, he was the Jordan-Trexler Professor of Religion at Roanoke College since 2008 and on faculty since 1989. An Anglican priest, he is teaching pastor at Christ the King Anglican Church, and is married to Jean. Together they have three sons and twelve grandchildren.
