Overview

This provocative collection of papers from an international array of theologians explores the Christian doctrine of the Trinity in the context of twentieth-century cultural and religious pluralism. How should Christians think about their faith in relation to other faiths and in relation to culture in general? Can the Trinity fit into a global religion? These essays - originally presented at the Fifth Edinburgh Dogmatic Conference - show how a full-orbed Trinitarian doctrine, with a proper emphasis on both the One and the Three, provides the necessary resources for successfully addressing the problems and the possibilities of contemporary pluralism.

Editorial Reviews

Trinity Journal
Overall, this book's essays display fine scholarship and rigorous analysis, and they show how Christianity—despite accusations of narrowness and intolerance—can address the problem of the one and the many, via the doctrine of the Trinity, far better than its competitors.
Word & World
This volume will be useful for anyone who is looking for a sound theological position from which to begin thinking through the difficult issues raised by pluralism.
Journal of Ecumenical Studies
Although diehard modernists will probably not be convinced of the merit in retaining the kinds of traditional trinitarian views held by most of the authors, the articles are by and large well written and worthwhile. This publication can make a genuine contribution to any serious attempt at dialogue regarding the role and function of trinitarian thought in the modern age.
