Sang Hyun Lee Honored

Sang Hyun Lee Honored

On September 17, 2015, a portrait of Professor Sang Hyun Lee was hung at Princeton Theological Seminary honoring his work and service to the seminary, to promoting Asian-American Studies and students in academia and the ministry, and to Edwards Studies as an editor, scholar, and teacher. His contributions to the Yale series of Edwards's Works included the editing of volume 21, on The Trinity, Grace and Faith, which featured a masterful introduction. 

He organized and hosted two international conferences on Edwards, one in Philadelphia in 1996, and another at PTS in 2002, both of which resulted in published proceedings, entitled, respectively, Edwards In Our Time and The Princeton Companion to Jonathan
 Edwards, both of which introduced Edwards to new audiences. He was also
 one of the key speakers at the National Symposium on Edwards held in
Washington, DC, on the tercentenary of Edwards birth in 2003. Most of
all, Prof. Lee's master work, The Philosophical Theology of JonathanEdwards, published in 1988 and again in 2000, with its identification of
Edwards' dispositional ontology, established a paradigm for
interpretation that continues to set the parameters for Edwards
scholarship to this day. 

Most recently, he contributed to the forthcoming
Jonathan Edwards Encyclopedia. Prof. Lee's legacy endures not only
through his writings, but through the students he taught and the
dissertations he directed, forming future generations of scholars,
ministers, and educators.

Today, Edwards enjoys unprecedented interest on a global scale, and Prof.
Lee, through his dynamic portrayal and recommendation of Edwards
 thought, has played a vital role in cultivating and encouraging that
level of readership and dialogue. We all owe him a great debt for the
time, thought and effort he devoted to the study of Edwards, and we are
delighted to express our heartfelt admiration for and appreciation to him
as his portrait is hung to grace the hallowed halls of Princeton Theological Seminary.
