Abstract:

A Theology in Outline frames the whole of Christian theology as a response to the question posed by the Lord to the prophet Ezekiel: "Son of man, can these bones live" (Ezekiel 37:3)? By Jenson's lights, to ask whether these bones can live is to ask, first, whether the story that God lives with his people can continue. Then, too, one can ask: is the Christian faith itself a pile of dead bones? Is Christian theology dead? It is under the impelling pressure of this question that A Theology in Outline seeks to introduce students to a traditional sequence of topics in Christian theology: God, Trinity, creation, humanity, sin, salvation, and church.
