"With the death of Stanley Grenz, the evangelical world lost one of its most prolific and creative theological minds, and this volume offers a fitting tribute to both the breadth of his theological contributions and the extent of his influence. Assembling an impressive array of theologians from across the spectrum of evangelicalism and beyond, this excellent book contributes to a needed analysis of Grenz's theology and offers an interesting overview of contemporary evangelical theology."
--Marc Cortez, Associate Professor of Theology, Wheaton College, Wheaton, IL
"In her last known letter, Emily Dickenson wrote two words: 'Called Back.' Stanley Grenz was called home too abruptly to leave such a note, but his literary legacy continues to stir and inspire. The extent of his reach is evident in the range of contributors to this book and the themes they pursue in dialogue with Grenz. An important contribution to the doing of churchly evangelical theology today."
--Timothy George, Founding Dean, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University, Birmingham, AL
"The essays in Revisioning, Renewing Rediscovering the Triune Center do much more than honor the achievements of Stanley Grenz. They display the crossroads present in contemporary evangelical theology as its travels into the twenty-first century. Following an introductory chapter providing an invaluable and indispensable intellectual biography of the path Grenz's theology took, the essays are written by internationally known theologians, taking on the core of the issues in Grenz's theology through their discussions of the Trinity, community, and eschatology. The essays also attend to theology's relation to culture and show the nature of theology's roots in Scripture and tradition, creatively illumining and even going beyond Grenz's work. As such, they offer diverse displays of the multiple issues within evangelical theology today."
--Francis Schussler Fiorenza, Stillman Professor of Roman Catholic Theological Studies, Harvard Divinity School, Cambridge, MA
"This collection of rigorous, irenic, and creative explorations from a diverse array of scholars serves as a fitting tribute to the life and legacy of Stanley J. Grenz. Addressing themes that were central to his Trinitarian framework, this volume illustrates that Grenz's theological enterprise is alive and well. His work continues to serve as a significant dialogue partner that holds promise for the shaping of the theological community's future."
--Paul Louis Metzger, Professor of Christian Theology & Theology of Culture, Multnomah Biblical Seminary, Portland, OR
"A wonderful set of essays about, and engagements with, Stan Grenz. In divergent ways, these vibrant essays take the reader into the substance and significance of Grenz's theological project to articulate the eschatological orientation of the church's communal life with the triune God and from the triune God. The chapters on eschatology are especially illuminating, and gesture toward the importance of what is perhaps an underappreciated dimension of Grenz's project. Whoever wants to understand the possible trajectories of theological scholarship in dialogue with Grenz will profit immensely from this book. Hopefully these essays will serve as a call for a new generation of Christian scholars to take up Grenz's work in creative, imaginative, and pastoral ways. A much deserved and worthy tribute!"
--Mark Medley, Associate Professor of Christian Theology, Baptist Seminary of Kentucky, Georgetown, KY
