Editorial Reviews

Review

This project is a remarkable achievement. It is comprehensive, coherent, consistent, fluent, and subtle. It is contemporary, earthed, mature, and nuanced. It never misses a trick. (Theology)

Refreshingly engaging. (Teaching Theology & Religion)

I believe that A Grammar of Christian Faith is destined, along with the work of Jenson and McClendon, to be the book that signals the recovery of the Christian voice in modernity. Deeply schooled by Wittgenstein, the Church Fathers, Barth, and Yoder, Jones' presentation of Christian convictions is as elegant as it is profound. Anyone committed to serious theological reflection must read this book. (Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics, Duke University Divinity School)

By FrKurt Messick HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on February 22, 2003
Format: Paperback
I have been acquainted with the book 'A Grammar of Christian Faith: Systematic Explorations in Christian Life and Doctrine' by Joe R. Jones, Professor Emeritus of Theology, since long before it was in print. I have seen it in successive stages of outline and narrative construction, and have heard much of the material presented in lecture form, when I had Jones as my systematic theology professor several years ago. Jones devoted his career to administration and teaching, with the greater emphasis on the latter. He is not a widely published author, providing drafts and notes to students in his classes; it was not until his retirement that he found the time to put together the material into the form published here by Rowman & Littlefield.
This book consists largely of material derived from Jones' tenure as a systematic theology professor at Christian Theological Seminary. This began in outline form in the early 1990s, growing in shape and narrative over the course of ten years as Jones continued to teach the year-long course in systematic theology.
There was a brief debate over whether to include the words
'systematic theology' in the title; I was reminded (and think I mentioned to Joe) that Stephen Hawking's publishers informed him that for each equation he put in the text, he would lose half his readers. How much more true would that be for putting the linguistic equivalent of an equation -- a phrase like systematic theology - on the cover? Still, the word 'systematic' did make it into the secondary title, and if one knows Joe Jones, one knows that this is a word that is fitting of his life and work.
So, why is this called 'A Grammar of Christian Faith'?
Grammar consists of many elements, including syntax, semantics, pragmatics, that form together into locutions.

Format: Paperback
The theological gold within these pages continues to greatly enrich my preaching, pastoral care, teaching, administration, and worship leadership. For over 2 years I have opened up A Grammar at least once a week to re-read portions of this great gift from Jones to pastors and laypeople. He constantly challenges me to re-examine my theological suppositions and bring what I practice as a Christian pastor into into harmony with what I confess. Along with the writings of Yoder and Hauerwas, Jones has framed the Church's "grammar" brilliantly and without compromise for me. He has moved me to a new, sometimes uncomfortable, but always adventurous understanding of what God is calling the Church and its pastors to be and do in the 21st century.

This is a two volume but even though you pay the double amount you only receive one volume. Don't do it!
