The Trinity is central to Christian faith, but many Christians have questions about what the Trinity is and why we believe in a trinitarain God. In The Tripersonal God, Gerald O'Collins examines the roots and development of trinitarian belief, drawing on three areas for reflection: testimony to the tripersonal God in scriptures - both the Old Testament background and the teachings of Paul and the gospel writers; the development of trinitarian doctrine form the second-century writers and the early councils of the church through medieval theology and modern challenges; and major trinitarian issues of today, such as naming the Trinity, the distinct personal existence of the Holy Spirit, and trinitarian imagery.
Examines the Old Testament roots of trinitarian thought, the historical developments that gave rise to the doctrine of the trinity and contemporary thinking about trinitarian issues.
