The Trinity

Show Summary Details


After the introductory survey (O’Collins), this collection moves from first‐century biblical questions (Evans, Fee, and Segal), through the classical contribution to trinitarian thought of the Cappadocians and Augustine of Hippo (Lienhard, Coakley, and Barnes), on to theological and philosophical debates (Alston, Leftow, Davis, Tracy, and van Beeck). It ends with some ‘practical’ applications of trinitarian belief to art and preaching (Brown and Shuster). The volume proposes approaching multi‐faceted trinitarian faith by reflecting on biblical, historical, systematic (both theological and philosophical), and practical data and questions.
