An international cast of theologians come together in this volume to offer essays in tribute to the late Stanley J. Grenz, one of the leading theologians of his generation. Accordingly, the volume includes timely explorations in some of the most exciting areas in contemporary theology. It is only fitting that these very explorations revolve around the key motifs of Grenz's theology (Trinity, community, eschatology) and the key sources from which he drew for theology's construction (Scripture, tradition, culture). While engaging key features seen in Grenz's work, some of the essays here interact with Grenz's own writings, reflecting on his theological journey and his contributions to evangelical theology. In these ways, this volume highlights the kind of evangelical theology that so many have experienced in recent years and of which Stan Grenz was a leading proponent. Revisioning, Renewing, Rediscovering the Triune Center, then, makes a significant contribution to discussions in contemporary theology while itself setting out to honor the life and work of an eminent theologian who did so much for evangelical theology. ""Revisioning, Renewing, Rediscovering the Triune Center is a marvelous volume containing engaging essays written by a wide variety of important thinkers and theologians. Through the capable oversight of a gifted editorial team, readers of this volume have been presented with an impressive, comprehensive, and up-to-date theological symposium, a veritable theological feast. Scholars, students, and pastors will find this book not only to be a most helpful contribution, but a truly fitting tribute to the life, work, and legacy of Stanley J. Grenz."" --David S. Dockery, President, Trinity International University, Deerfield, IL ""With the death of Stanley Grenz, the evangelical world lost one of its most prolific and creative theological minds, and this volume offers a fitting tribute to both the breadth of his theological contributions and the extent of his influence. Assembling an impressive array of theologians from across the spectrum of evangelicalism and beyond, this excellent book contributes to a needed analysis of Grenz's theology and offers an interesting overview of contemporary evangelical theology."" --Marc Cortez, Associate Professor of Theology, Wheaton College, Wheaton, IL ""In her last known letter, Emily Dickenson wrote two words: 'Called Back.' Stanley Grenz was called home too abruptly to leave such a note, but his literary legacy continues to stir and inspire. The extent of his reach is evident in the range of contributors to this book and the themes they pursue in dialogue with Grenz. An important contribution to the doing of churchly evangelical theology today."" --Timothy George, Founding Dean, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University, Birmingham, AL ""The essays in Revisioning, Renewing Rediscovering the Triune Center do much more than honor the achievements of Stanley Grenz. They display the crossroads present in contemporary evangelical theology as its travels into the twenty-first century. Following an introductory chapter providing an invaluable and indispensable intellectual biography of the path Grenz's theology took, the essays are written by internationally known theologians, taking on the core of the issues in Grenz's theology through their discussions of the Trinity, community, and eschatology. The essays also attend to theology's relation to culture and show the nature of theology's roots in Scripture and tradition, creatively illumining and even going beyond Grenz's work. As such, they offer diverse displays of the multiple issues within evangelical theology today."" --Francis Schussler Fiorenza, Stillman Professor of Roman Catholic Theological Studies, Harvard Divinity School, Cambridge, MA ""This collection of rigorous, irenic, and creative explorations from a diverse array of scholars serves as a fitting tribute to the life and legacy of Stanley J. Grenz. Addressing themes
