Product Description

The Tribune God covers more topics than may be expected. Jenson's systematic theology is shaped by conviction that Israel's Exodus and the Israelite jesus' Resurection do not merely provide information about a divinity otherwise identified, but determined who and what God is. Therefore Christology, pneumatology, and other matters usually taken up elsewhere appear within the doctrine of God. Moreover, Jenson's system is shaped by insistence on the continuity of the church's faith with that of Israel, a conviction enforced by extensive passages of biblical exegesis.

Publisher's Description

The Triune God, together with the forthcoming second volume, The Works of God, develops a compendious statement of Christian theology in the tradition of a medieval summa, or of such modern works as those of Schleiermacher and Barth. Theology, as it is understood here, is the Christian church's continuing discourse concerning her specific communal purpose; it is the hermeneutic and critical reflection internal to the church's task of speaking the gospel, to the world as message and to God in petition and praise. This volume and its successor are thus dedicated to the service of the one church of the creeds; it is for no particular denomination or confession.

Editorial Reviews

"...this two-volume systematic theology is a great achievement. Drawn from learning that is both vast and profound, the rich details and frequently exciting flashes of insight provided by this work confirm the stature of Robert Jenson among contemporary theologians..."--First Things
