This chapter examines Maurice's dominant theological characteristics and assesses whether Unitarianism made a specific contribution to the shape and content of his teaching. The focus of this chapter is on Maurice's commitment to the person of God as Father. Maurice played an important role in restoring the belief in the Fatherhood of God to a primary place in Christian thought. The very core of Maurice's theology emphasizes the responding relationship of God as Father and man as His son.
