The full systematic theology which Jensen begins with The Triune God: Systematic Theology I promises to be the capstone of his long and distinguished career as a theologian. Jensen begins this first of two volumes with an extended discussion of the nature and norms of theology. He then devotes the bulk of the volume to the identity and being of the biblical God, including classic christological and soteriological questions most systems take up elsewhere.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Robert Jenson's two volume Systematic Theology is a highly creative and individual synthesis of a number of often divergent strands of contemporary theology ... This is a work that deserves and requires patient, diligent, attentive readers, to whom it will demonstrate that the sheer oddity of Christian faith is one of its chief glories and the clearest proof of its divine origin. * Francis Watson, University of Aberdeen, Scottish Journal of Theology *
Without attempting to be as encyclopedic, say, as Pannenberg, or as imposing as someone like Barth, Jenson has opted instead to be judicious, an endeavour that succeeds admirably. At his fingertips he has an astonishing fund of citations and quotations from every period of theology's history and every ecumenical tradition ... Besides being theologically deft, the work is also culturally, scientifically and philosophically sophisticated. * George Hunsinger, Princeton Theological Seminary, Scottish Journal of Theology *
Robert W. Jenson gives us the twentieth century's most accomplished systematic theology written in English. It has few peers in any language. It is concise without being trivial, learned but not inaccessible, ecumenical while still rooted in Lutheran confessions, and stunningly fresh and original in its approach to the major topics. No one at any level, whether advanced or neophyte, can fail to learn from this work or remain unchallenged by it. It is the consummate work of a lifetime. * George Hunsinger, Princeton Theological Seminary, Scottish Journal of Theology *
A major event in English language academic theology ... It is every inch a theologian's work, dense and difficult at times, but wide-ranging, historically and ecumenically, and rooted in the life and liturgy of the Church. * Theology *
