The two volumes of Robert Jenson's Systematic Theology present a compendious statement of Christian theology in the tradition of the medieval summa. In this volume, The Triune God, Jenson addresses the questions surrounding the nature of the Chriatian God, including classic christological as well as trinitarian question. The second volume, The Works of God, examines such topics as the nature and role of the Church, and God's works of creation.
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.
"...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
