Product Description

The doctrine of the Trinity has generated more misunderstandings among Christians than any other. William La Due provides a brief and comprehensive introduction to the mystery of the Trinity, tracing its evolution from its Old Testament roots to its contemporary expressions. La Due presents a historical survey and authoritative and readable summaries of prominent Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox theologians. He begins with the Old Testament scholarship of theologians such as Gerhard von Rad and Walter Brueggeman. He then chronicles thedoctrine's formulation through the seventh century in church councils and in the writings of the earliest church theologians. He examines the doctrine as it develops from the Middle Ages to the end of the nineteenth century in the works of theologians ranging from Aquinas to Schleiermacher.

Moving on to the twentieth century, La Due explores the contributions of Catholic thinkers such as Rahner and La Cugna and Protestant theologians such as Barth and Moltmann. Finally, he outlines Orthodox, Liberation, Feminist, and Process contributions to the discussion of the Trinity.
