Robert W. Jenson's books include Systematic Theology (1997, 1999), On Thinking the Human: Resolutions of Difficult Notions (2003), a commentary on Song of Songs (2005) and a commentary on Ezekiel (2009).
It is by living and dying that one becomes a theologian, Martin Luther said. With that comment in mind, we have resumed a Century series published at intervals since 1939 and asked theologians to reflect on their own struggles, disappointments, questions and hopes as people of faith and to consider how their work and life have been intertwined.
