Two Views on the Doctrine of the Trinity (Counterpoints: Bible and Theology)

Holmes, Stephen R; Molnar, Paul D; McCall, Thomas H; Fiddes, Paul S

Product Description

The doctrine of the Trinity stands front and center of the Christian faith and its articulation. After a sustained drought of trinitarian engagement, the doctrine of the Trinity has increasingly resurged to the forefront of Evangelical confession. The second half of the twentieth century, however, saw a different kind of trinitarian theology developing, giving way to what has commonly been referred to as the “social Trinity.”

As Evangelicals get better at articulating the doctrine of the Trinity, and believers in various Christian traditions seek to be more trinitarian, the way forward for trinitarian theology must reckon with the classical and relational views of the doctrine, both representing some of the best ways of understanding the doctrine of the Trinity today.

In this volume, four leading contributors establish their models and approaches to the doctrine of the Trinity, each highlighting the strengths of his view in order to argue how it best reflects the orthodox perspective. They are:

  • Stephen R. Holmes—Classical Trinity: Evangelical Perspective
  • Paul D. Molnar—Classical Trinity: Catholic Perspective
  • Thomas H. McCall—Relational Trinity: Creedal Perspective
  • Paul S. Fiddess—Relational Trinity: Radical Perspective

In order to facilitate a genuine debate and to make sure that the key issues are teased out, each contributor addresses the same questions regarding their trinitarian methodology, the doctrine, and its implications.
