Editorial Reviews

O.P. J. A. Di Noia
"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."
David E. Demson
"In these essays twenty bright and mostly well-known theologians 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."
Reinhard Hütter
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.
