Product Description

In this original, contemporary doctrine of the Trinity, revered theologian William Placher places the history of theology in dialogue with postmodern philosophy and yields a provocative post liberal interpretation. Bringing together the insights of Thomas Aquinas, John Calvin, Karl Barth, Hans Urs on Balthasar, Emmanuel Levinas, and Ludwig Wittgenstein, Placher deftly connects a radical view of Gods transcendence with a narrative Christology, His resulting thesis is twofold: first, the doctrine of the Trinity is not a way of explaining the inner nature of God but a way of preserving Gods mystery, and second, the Trinity should be presented by showing how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one God moving from the Three in One, not the other around. An exceptionally clear and engaging presentation on this central Christina doctrine, The Triune God both advances the scholarly and ecclesial discussion on the Trinity and provides a welcome, and unusually concrete, introduction to post liberal theology.

William C. Placher is Charles D. and Elizabeth S. LaFollette Distinguished Professor in the Humanities and Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religion at Wabash College in Crawfordsville, IN.
