Customer Reviews for Westminster John Knox Press Canon and Creed

Westminster John Knox Press Canon and Creed

How does the church understand the relation between its Scripture and its creedal formulations? No one is more qualified to address that question than Robert W. Jenson, who shows how canon and creed work together and interact and that neither is adequate or sufficient to guide Christian faith without the help of the other.

Canon and Creed will enable contemporary interpreters and teachers, pastors, and laity to deal with the questions and tensions that are always present as the church seeks to hold canon and creed together.

Jenson is unusual; in the best of ways. His is that rare mind and voice that always seems to be able to see things that the rest of us miss. In more scholarly works, his style can be difficult to follow, but here, that is not the case. This little book expounds it's subject matter in an enlightening and intelligible manner. He seeks to portray both the Scriptures and the creeds derived from them as complimentary sources; not always an attractive proposition to the average Protestant reader. Jenson is a churchman of the highest order.
