Esteemed academic delivers inaugural lecture at the UFS

 Prof. Hoffie Hofmeyer, Extraordinary Professor of Church History in the Faculty of Theology at the University of the Free State (UFS) delivered his inaugural lecture on: “Transformation in theological education: Jonathan Edwards and his relevance for South Africa” this week. His lecture followed the official opening of the Jonathan Edwards Centre Africa in the Faculty of Theology at the UFS.

In his lecture he focused, among others, on the views held by Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758), one of North America’s most prominent theologians and theological genius and their possible significance for us today. He also discussed some of the challenges lying ahead for the Faculty of Theology at the UFS. “These challenges are immense but if this faculty can manage to handle them, the fruits will be most rewarding,” he said.
