In The Trinity, author Thomas J. Norris, priest and professor of systematic theology, attempts to marry Christian spirituality with theology. Tragically, many believers fail to appreciate the mystery of the Trinity. Norris shows how communion with one another unites us to a cause larger than ourselves. The Focalare Movement, a Catholic reform movement, is active today in spreading the importance of communion in developing authentic human beings. Paperback.
The Trinity is the first of the mysteries of faith. Tragically, however, it is also the mystery that speaks least to many believers. This is the issue addressed in this volume. Hans Urs von Balthasar once observed that the greatest tragedy in the history of theology was the separation of theology from spirituality. Thomas Norris has in this work helped to heal that fatal separation. Here one finds a theology and spirituality of communion. Professor Norris shows how the Christian spiritual way of communion is well represented today especially by the remarkable Chiara Lubich, the founder of the Focolare Movement, one of the great Catholic movements of spiritual reform today. The anti-individualist spirituality of communion is, as this work shows, central to Christianity and indeed to being an authentic human being as such. Communion unites persons one to the other in a cause greater than themselves. It is difficult to conceive how any considerate person will not be aided by this theologically thoughtful and spiritually moving book. From the Foreword by David C. Tracy Professor Emeritus University of Chicago Divinity School
