Jeffrey Jue

Church History

Rev. Dr. Jeffrey Jue (PhD, University of Aberdeen) is provost and executive vice president at Westminster Theological Seminary. Dr. Jue also holds the Stephen Tong Chair of Reformed Theology and is associate professor of church history. As of May 24, 2017, Dr. Jeffrey K. Jue is on leave of absence from his position as Provost and faculty member at Westminster Theological Seminary. During his leave of absence, Dr. Jue will be working on several academic projects and also dealing with some personal and family issues. We wish Dr. Jue well during this period of leave and ask for the prayers of God’s people during his time away.

Dr. Jue’s academic and teaching interests include modern church history and globalization. For those who are new to Dr. Jue’s work on these interests, he recommends several resources as places to start. On church history, he would recommend starting with his work on Joseph Mede, Heaven Upon Earth: Joseph Mede (1586–1638) and the Legacy of Millenarianism, or his contribution to These Last Days: A Christian View of History. Also consider his TGC article, “Living for the New Heaven and New Earth.” Regarding globalization, he has written on the Chinese church in a number of articles, and also spoken at several Westminster conferences in Hong Kong, including the Common Grace and the Gospel Conference in 2012.
