Systematic Theology: God’s Triune Identity

Wednesday, February 3, 2010
6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


This class will meet on most Wednesdays through April, studying closely the central pages of Robert W. Jenson’s Systematic Theology, volume one. In these pages, Jenson develops a systematic account of the Trinity in modern terms. ————– This class is particularly for those who want to wrestle with high-octane, serious theology; it will provide a worthy alternative, in some respects, to Thomas Aquinas. ———————- To get full benefit, participants should attempt to read about 10 pages each week outside of class. But it is not expected that participants will understand the reading fully! In class, we will work through challenges of the reading, in some cases going sentence by sentence. ————— For February 3, we will be looking at the chapter “The Persons of God’s Identity,” which begins on page 75.
