Description

Exodus and Resurrection establishes the important place God’s identity as the "God of Israel" has in the systematic theology of Robert W. Jenson. The work demonstrates that the identification of the God of Israel as the agent of Jesus’ resurrection functions as a foundational premise in Jenson's Trinitarian theology. Andrew W. Nicol argues that a central characteristic of Jenson's work is not merely his recognition that the same God who rescued Israel from Egypt raised Jesus from the dead, or the related yet distinct step of renovating his theology in a nonsupersessionist fashion, but also his attempt to conceive of the full implications for doing so in Christian theology, in the church's self-understanding, and in the church's relation to Israel and continuing Judaism. In this, Exodus and Resurrection provides a clear and critically appreciative account of Robert W. Jenson's work and offers a new vital architectonic map of Jenson's systematic vision.

Endorsements

"This work by Andrew W. Nicol is very welcome, not only because Robert Jenson is one of the most eloquent and stimulating theological thinkers of our age but also because the place of Israel in Christian theology is a theme of tremendous importance that has not been given sufficient attention. Nicol's study provides us with a rich and learned exploration of Jenson's theology and helps us to think in fresh ways about what it means to have faith in the God of Israel."

Murray Rae | University of Otago

"This is a wonderful study: elegant, clear, and demonstrative of serious theological learning. Andrew W. Nicol does a masterful job of assessing, illuminating, and scrutinizing Jenson's account of the God of Israel on his wider systematic framework and in relationship to the theological tradition."

Christopher Holmes | University of Otago

"Robert W. Jenson has asserted that 'God is whoever raised Jesus from the dead, having before raised Israel out of Egypt.' In this groundbreaking work, Andrew W. Nicol shows that the second half of this formula is as important as the first: God's identity as YHWH is constitutive of God's triune being. Nicol helpfully illuminates not just Jenson's teaching concerning Israel and Judaism but the structure of his theology as a whole. A landmark contribution to Jenson-studies and to the literature on supersessionism."
