This volume gathers together twelve essays on the doctrine of the Trinity. It includes the work of systematic theologians, analytic theologians, and biblical scholars who address a range of issues concerning the Christian doctrine of God. Contributors include Jeremy Begbie, Julie Canlis, Douglas Campbell, William Hasker, and Christoph Schwobel. The volume also includes a new essay written by the late Robert W. Jenson shortly before his death.

""The doctrine of the Trinity stands at the very heart of the Christian faith and is key to understanding every facet of the Christian life. It ensures that Christian worship and witness to what God has done (and continues to do) stems from who God is eternally. This impressive collection of essays will both help and inspire its readers to dig deeper into what Christians affirm about the being of God, as well as the grounds and significance of those affirmations. Eccletic in mix, wide-ranging in scope, and rich in insights, this volume offers us a wonderful view into the latest thinking on this topic from several world-renowned theologians. It is a source of immense encouragement that a trinitarian focus in theology continues to thrive both in our churches and in the academy today. Thanks be to God!""
