Show Summary Details


Brian Leftow compares the ‘Latin’ approach to the Trinity (which takes the fact that there is one God as basic and unproblematic, and tries to explain how one God can be three divine persons) to the ‘Social’ position (which begins with three divine persons and shows how they can be one God). He examines three broad ways that Social Trinitarians use to show their versions of the Trinity to be a version of monotheism. In the end, however, he judges that none presents a doctrine of God, which is both orthodox and monotheist.
