More About Robert W. Jenson & Carl E. Braaten

Robert W. Jenson Robert W. Jenson is an American Lutheran systematic theologian and Professor Emeritus of Religion at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN. Currently he is a professor of religion at the Center for Theological Inquiry at Princeton Theological Seminary.

Jenson attended Luther College and Luther Seminary. Between his years as a college student and a seminarian, he studied philosophy in Paris as a Fulbright scholar. At Luther Seminary Jenson was assistant to the famous Orthodox Lutheran theologian, Herman Preus. Preus infused with Jenson a strong belief in Orthodox Lutheran understanding of predestination. Against the majority of the staff at Luther Seminary at that time, who believed that God merely foreknew who would have faith and who not, Preus held that God had decreed the salvation of a definite number of the elect, without a decree of reprobation.

Later Jenson went to Heidelberg where he became familiar with the theology of Karl Barth, and, under the supervision of Peter Brunner, he wrote his doctoral dissertation on Barth's doctrine of election. Jenson then began teaching at Luther College, where he continued to study Barth and also became increasingly interested in the philosophy of Hegel. The staff of the Religion Department at Luther College grew impatient with his teaching and charged him with teaching heresy. They threatened to resign if Jenson was not fired, but the college's president supported Jenson, and several professors subsequently left the college.

Throughout this period he became increasingly interested in ecumenical theology, and in the 1980s and 1990s his theology moved in a progressively Catholic and ecumenical direction. With Braaten he founded the Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology. The Centre publishes the journal Pro Ecclesia, and it has produced several books on ecumenical theology.

Robert W. Jenson currently resides in Princeton, in the state of New Jersey. Robert W. Jenson has an academic affiliation as follows - Princeton University.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christian Dogmatics, Volume 2?

Volume II: Forde is great, get rid of the rest  Oct 24, 2002
Commenting only on volume II (you can buy it seperately), Gerhard Forde's locus on Christian life (eleven) is awesome!! I would give this volume 5 stars if it contained only the eleventh locus (and maybe the twelfth). My understanding of sanctification has been completely turned around thanks to Dr. Forde.
Christian? Dogmatics  Aug 21, 2000
For the uninitiated, 'dogmatics' is the systematic study of theology,i.e. concentrating in specific 'chapters' (loci) everything Scripture (and other theologians) have to say about the given topic. For example, Topic 1 may be "Creation," followed by a thorough study of everything Scripture has to say on the topic. Though the editors, both professed liberal Lutherans, have undoubtedly worked hard at compling the latest scholarship, conservative Christians (and esp. conservative Lutherans) will shudder at the results. Completely promoting the idea that the Bible is a man-made, evolutionary document, the authors have the brashness to suggest such things as that Jesus of Nazareth may have been the product of the rape of a young Jewish girl by a Roman soldier. There are other atrocities as well. Received as progressive, ecumenical, and enlightening by liberal factions in Christianity, "Christian Dogmatics" leaves Bible-believing followers of Jesus saying, "All accolades aside, it this true?" For those looking for an anchor for their faith, this text will only set the searching soul adrift into the sea of modern theological confusion, where truth is relative and, in the end, unknoweable.
