With the publication of his two-volume Systematic Theology, Robert W. Jenson has established himself as a distinctive voice in Christian theology. In Trinity, Time, and Church leading scholars from around the world and from diverse faith traditions critically engage the major themes of Jenson's thought. These rich essays both celebrate Jenson's theological achievement and probe what some of the authors regard as the more contentious of his contributions. --Twenty bright and mostly well-known theologians here inquire into Robert Jenson's account of God's triune life as the place of God's temporality and ours. Common appreciation for Jenson's major theme 'God takes time for us, ' and for the way he unfolds it, spurs the contributors on to attempt critical developments and corrections. The book provides a surprisingly comprehensive description of Jenson's theology and, therefore, also provides a cogent perspective from which to explore contemporary theology.-- -- David E. Demson Emmanuel College --This volume is not only a splendid festschrift for a splendid theologian but also a very helpful introduction to and engagement of one of today's most thoughtful and daringly uncompromising theological voices.-- -- Reinhard Hutter Duke Divinity School --Through nearly forty years of teaching and writing, in ten books and numerous essays, Robert Jenson has emerged as a distinctive and brilliant voice in systematic theology. In this volume an international team of contributors undertakes the first comprehensive engagement with the central themes of Jenson's wide-ranging theological output. This book is a must for anyone who travels the path of fides quaerens intellectum.-- -- J. A. Di Noia, O.P. Dominican House of Studies, Washington, D.C. Colin E. Gunton (1941-2003) was Professor of Christian doctrine at King's College London. He authored twelve books including The Christian Faith and The Triune Creator.
