Review quote

an insightful and creative contribution to the contemporary theological enterprise. * Thomas Weinandy, The Expository Times, June 2000. * straighforwardly theological ... Jenson is quite insightful in his treatement of creation and the human persona s well as his handling of eschatology, but he is at his best when examining all of the various issues surrounding ecclesiology. He masterfully weaves his way through such topics as the church as the body of Christ, the people of God and the communion of believers; the nature and role of the episcopacy and hierachy, and the centrality of the sacraments, especially the eucharist ... Jenson manifests both his extensive knowledge of the ecumenical scene, and his ability to offer insights that further an ecumenical consensus. * Thomas Weinandy, The Expository Times, June 2000. * We owe Robert Jenson a debt of gratitude for this sound and engaging rehearsal of the Christian faith. * David Moss, Reviews in Religion and Theology * Jenson's work deserves a wide audience and careful reception. He has a very keen eye for presenting the 'real issue' at the heart of theological questions that have become silted with confusion and in that his presentation of the Faith has real pedagogic value. * David Moss, Reviews in Religion and Theology * Robert Jenson ... has produced an extremely readable and stimulating systematics ... Jenson forces his readers to think and makes it a pleasure to do so. Jenson covers a great deal of landscape in The Works of God and though his breadth of learning is everywhere present it is not pretentious ... Jenson moves between ecclesial traditions and academic disciplines with both ease and clarity and doe so in such a way that the issue under consideration is illumined rather than obscured ... an example of how theology should be written. * Eric G.Flett, Themelios Vol 26:2 * in Robert Jenson the church has a most creative and thoughtful advocate. * Eric G.Flett, Themelios Vol 26:2 *show more
