What People are Saying About This

Neil Ormerod

The Trinity in History is a book that will stand the test of time and continue to be valuable for theological researchers for generations to come. Bringing together a number of strands from his work over the past decade, Robert M. Doran provides a detailed exposition of aspects of Bernard Lonergan’s work and expands it into new and fruitful areas. Synthesizing these insights into the starting point for a new systematic theology, Doran proceeds with measured care to ensure that nothing is lost along the way.
—Neil Ormerod (Professor of Theology, The Australian Catholic University)

Randall S. Rosenberg

The Trinity in History is an extremely important book, for despite the proliferation of Trinitarian theology, Lonergan’s voice in this discussion has not yet been fully heard. Building nicely on his previous work, Robert M. Doran guides us systematically through an expansive argument, integrating his appropriation and development of Lonergan’s thought with that of other important contemporary thinkers, most notably the groundbreaking work of Réne Girard. Attentive to our multi-religious context, he develops a theology of the Holy Spirit that deserves wide engagement.
—Randall S. Rosenberg (Sisters of St Joseph of Carondelet Endowed Chair in Catholic Thought, Fontbonne University)
