Product Description

Critiquing modern criticisms of what author D. Stephen Long calls the "traditional answer" to the question of God, The Perfectly Simple Triune God challenges the reading of Aquinas that presumes independent treatises of the one God and the Trinity. Long posits that the two treatises were never independent, but inextricably related and entailing one another. In this, he provides a constructive rereading of Thomas Aquinas, the patristic tradition and the Reformers. This constructive interpretation of Aquinas takes into account challenges to the classical tradition posed by modern and contemporary theology and philosophy to offer a robust articulation of divine Trinitarian agency for a contemporary age that adheres to broadly considered orthodox and ecumenical parameters.

Editorial Reviews

"I can think of no better introduction to the doctrine of divine simplicity that this one. D. Stephen Long makes a compelling case for why, despite its many detractors, Thomas Aquinas's affirmation that 'God is simple' helps Christians to be more robustly and explicitly Trinitarian."

—Edgardo A. Colón-Emeric, Assistant Professor of Christian Theology, Duke Divinity School
