Product Description

The adoption of a new rule of faith in the seventeenth century significantly changed the way English-speaking Protestants perceive the doctrine of the Trinity. Having been the proper personal name by which Christians came to know and love their God, the Trinity became primarily a rational construct and as such no longer clearly mattered for salvation. In Invocation and Assent Jason Vickers charts this crucial theological shift, illuminating the origins of indifference to the Trinity found in many quarters of Christianity today.

Endorsements

“Jason Vickers provides a penetrating and fresh reading of the Trinitarian debates in England in the seventeenth century. This is not simply a matter of accurate theological archaeology; nor is it just a timely reminder of the critical importance of the much-neglected history of English-speaking theology. It also puts on display critical factors that contemporary doctrines of the Trinity must heed. The constructive dimension of this project builds skillfully on the historical and analytical; the lessons that lie in wait for the careful reader are both sobering and bracing.” —William J. Abraham, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University

“This insightful, engaging study of English Protestant theology in the seventeenth century helps us to account for the neglect of the doctrine of the Trinity in modern theology---something from which most Protestant Christians today are still trying to recover. By carefully recounting this largely unknown story, Jason Vickers has filled an important gap in the history of Trinitarian doctrine and made an important contribution to the current Trinitarian renaissance. Yet Invocation and Assent is much more than a historical study. Its greatest value lies in clearly and forcefully reminding us what the ultimate purpose of the doctrine of the Trinity is: not to offer a rational explanation of how God can be three in one, but to enable us---in baptism, worship, formation, and mission---to personally encounter, know, and love the triune God. That’s why this book needs to be read not only by academics but by pastors and Christian leaders everywhere.” -Stephen A. Seamands, Asbury Theological Seminary
