Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“An insightful examination of a central statement of the Christian faith . . . those who seek a deeper understanding of the creed will find this book substantial.” —National Catholic Reporter

“With characteristic verve and epigrammatic wit, Nicholas Lash has crafted a tantalizing reflection on the trinitarian dynamic of reality.” —Journal of Religion

“Only a first-rate thinker and stylist could achieve such a union of substance and brevity. Lash is outstanding in both the depth of his thought and the clarity of his writing.” —Commonweal

“Fortunately for us, Professor Lash has a gift for simplifying some of the most complex and formal aspects of the discussions about language and reality as they may relate to theology. His discussion about interpretation is especially helpful both to the uninitiated and those familiar with current issues.” —Pro Ecclesia
