Jenning gained his B.A. in religion and theology at Calvin College in 1984, and his M.Div in Fuller Theological Seminary in 1987. He completed his Ph.D. in religion, with a concentration on theology and ethics, at Duke University in 1993, supervised under Geoffrey Wainwright. His Ph.D. dissertation topic is “Reclaiming the Creature: Anthropological Vision in the Thought of Athanasius of Alexandria and Karl Barth.”[1]

From 1990 to 2015, Jennings worked at Duke University Divinity School and taught theology and black church studies there,[2] before he was appointed associate professor of systematic theology and Africana studies at Yale in 2015.[3] He is an ordained Baptist minister and has served as interim pastor for several North Carolina churches.

In 2010, Jennings published his book The Christian Imagination: Theology and the Origins of Race,[4] for which he received the American Academy of Religion book award in 2011,[5] and the Grawemeyer Award in Religion in 2015.[1] Jennings released Acts: A Theological Commentary on the Bible through the Belief Bible commentary series in 2017.[6] He is currently working on a major monograph provisionally entitled Unfolding the World: Recasting a Christian Doctrine of Creation. He also contributes regularly on Religious Dispatches, a website run by University of Southern California that concerns on the intersection of religion, politics, and culture.[7]

He was married to Joanne Browne on July 25, 1987 and he has two daughters, Njeri Ariel Browne Jennings and Safiya Eliana Simone Jennings.[1]
