This interdisciplinary study is the result of an international and ecumenical meeting of nineteen scholars held in New York at Easter 1998: the Trinity Summit. Biblical experts examine the scriptural roots of trinitarian doctrine, patristic scholars correct those who continue to misinterpret the trinitarian teaching of the Cappadocians and Augustine, and five scholars examine systematic and foundational issues like the viability of social models for the Trinity. The volume ends with a study of the Trinity in art and the challenge of preaching the Trinity today. Each of the papers presented here have been circulated to all of the contributors not only improving the chapters, but also establishing firmer links between the four sections of the book. The international reputation of the participants reflects and guarantees the high quality of this joint work.
... an interesting collection and a welcome contribution to the current revival of the theology of the Trinity. * International Journal in Philosophy and Theology * No other recent book brings together biblical, systematic and historical contributions ... much of this book provides some long-overdue demythologising of what have become common places of recent theology. For this alone it deserves a warm welcome. * The Tablet *
