Imago Trinitatis contributes to the contemporary task of seeking to retrieve the central Christian symbol of the triune God. It interfaces the trinitarian theology of Catherine LaCugna and new anthropological models based on women's interpreted experience of relationality offered by feminist theologians, especially the vision of the post-patriarchal self of Catherine Keller, in order to delineate a theological conception of the human person as communion. By reinterpreting imago Dei as imago Trinitatis, Mark Medley offers a proposal towards claiming that a trinitarian-feminist theological anthropology understands human personhood as being formed and transformed in one's personal existence to God's personal existence as persons of communion.
There is much to commend here. [Medley's] adept reviews of feminist theologians add value to this work beyond its theme, on which Medley provides a passionate and consistent focus. -- D. Allen Tennison, Fuller Theological Seminary Religious Studies Review Medley's work indicates some good resources and draws them out nicely. -- Jonathan R. Wilson, Acadia Divinity College Perspectives in Religious Studies Imago Trinitatis is an important Baptist contribution to discourse about the doctrine of the Trinity and its implications for all of Christian faith and practice. It might serve well as a supporting textbook for seminary-level courses in Trinitarian thought, theological anthropology, and feminist theology. -- Steven R. Harmon Review and Expositor
