Prior to his appointment to Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in 2001, Dr. Jensen was assistant professor of religion and philosophy at Manchester College in North Manchester, Indiana, where he taught theology, church history, and ethics. Jensen’s teaching career began with a Fulbright Teaching Fellowship to Austria after graduation from Carleton College in 1990. While a doctoral student at Vanderbilt University, Jensen received the Harvie Branscomb Fellowship, given to an entering doctoral student showing the most promise for academic contribution in the field of religion. He was a Master Teaching Fellow and university-wide consultant on effective teaching. He is currently among forty invited participants nationwide in the Workgroup in Constructive Theology.

His teaching interests include systematic and constructive theology, comparative religion and interreligious dialogue, Protestant theology, and philosophical theology. He has published several articles in the area of interreligious dialogue, and in his first book, In the Company of Others: A Dialogical Christology (Pilgrim Press, 2001), Jensen sets forth a christology that encourages dialogue among Christians and people of other faith traditions. His latest books include Graced Vulnerability: A Theology of Childhood (Pilgrim Press, 2005), Responsive Labor: A Theology of Work ( Westminster John Knox, 2006), and The Lord and Giver of Life: Perspectives in Constructive Pneumatology (Westminster John Knox, 2008) for which he was the editor. He is currently writing two book manuscripts. One is a short introduction to Christian hope and the other a theology of human sexuality
