Robert Jenson's large catechism

A while back, I told you about my happy discovery of a little-known work by Robert W. Jenson: his Large Catechism (1991). It has been impossible to get a copy of this, since it was produced on an extremely small print run. But a reader of F&T has just informed me that it has now been reprinted. The new printing includes an introduction by Gregory P. Fryer – and it’s available direct from the publishers for just 4 dollars. I’ll be ordering a copy or two right away!

You can see my earlier post for some excerpts from the booklet – including this one, which sums up Jenson’s whole theological vision:

“In our fallen religion, we think salvation would be escape from temporal existence, from the threats and opportunities of an open future…. But the true God is the one coming as the future rushes upon us; he is life rather than release from life. His very identity is set by what he does in time” (p. 8).
