Theology in Outline (Goodreads notes)

A Theology in Outline: Can These Bones Live?A Theology in Outline: Can These Bones Live? by Robert W. Jenson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A book that accomplishes what it sets out to do: provide a “taste” of theology, as Jenson puts it in his foreword. Jenson’s confidence and economy of expression serve him well in this sort of endeavor. My only complaint is that it would have been helpful to have a set of endnotes or bibliography after each chapter providing resources that go into more depth for the topics covered (with references to Jenson’s own work on each topic, and/or classical and contemporary sources) – simply because getting a “taste” often prompts a hunger for a full meal.

An enjoyable, energetic book (and how often can you say that about an introduction to theology?).
