David Hempton, who is the Harvard Divinity School Professor of Evangelical Theological Studies, will be on campus here at Perkins School of Theology next week. Dr. Hempton will be giving two lectures on the them of “Evangelical Enchantment and Disenchantment” on Monday October 6th at 7:00 P.M. and on Tuesday October 7th at 11:30 A.M. The title for his Monday lecture is “Culture Wars: George Eliot and Fundamentalism” and his Tuesday lecture is titled “Artists in Revolt: Vincent van Gogh and James Baldwin.” Both lectures will be given in room 120 of Highland Park United Methodist Church and are open to the public.
Dr. Hempton’s most recent book is Methodism: Empire of the Spirit, which I highly recommend.
