Story and Promise: A Brief Theology of the Gospel About Jesus

It is a thoughtful and satisfying piece of systematic theology in a time of shattered understandings of the faith. Professor jenson sees the heart of the gospel as "the unconditional promise of the ultimate triumph of the love of Jesus of Nazareth" This gospel is based on the story of Jesus and is worked out in the lives of men and of nations as the promise it brings moves towards fulfillment.

The respected american theologian robert Jenson here, in brief compass, laypeople, presents his uncluttered understanding of the Christian message in a form ideal for beginning students, and clergy.

Story and promise-we dare to call it a "one-volume dogmatics" -leaves no element of the Christian faith untouched: the classical doctrines concerning God, the Holy Spirit, man, Christ, the church; the clearly radical implications of these doctrines for personal and social transformation; the focus of Christian vision on the future as the time when God comes and man becomes what God intends.
