Wesley & Whitefield Symposium - with Book Launch

Wesley & Whitefield Symposium - with Book Launch

WHAT: A morning with lecturers from colleges across Australia, plus the book launch of 'Wesley and Whitefield? Wesley versus Whitefield?'
WHEN: 9.00am - 1.00pm Wednesday May 16 2018
WHERE: SMBC Croydon Campus, 43 Badminton Road, Croydon 2132
WHO: All those with an interest in the ministries of John Wesley and George Whitefield
COST: Free!

John Wesley and George Whitefield were in many ways larger-than-life figures during their own lifetimes and continue to be so today. Yet our ability to appreciate their abiding influence on contemporary Evangelical theology and practice is lacking if we consider them in isolation from one another. Our understanding of Wesley and the legacy of his public ministry is impoverished apart from considering Whitefield (and vice versa).

In celebration of the launch of 'Wesley and Whitefield? Wesley versus Whitefield?', edited by Ian J. Maddock, and as part of the SMBC postgraduate unit Reformation and Revival (CH789i) on 14–18 May 2018, SMBC will be hosting a symposium on 16 May on the ministries of John Wesley and George Whitefield. The symposium is open to the public.
