Publisher's Description

The study of Christian theology in the last half century has seen a major renaissance in Trinitarian thought which has attempted to connect Trinitarian theology to all aspects of Christian faith and practice. This revival has often addressed the unfortunate split which has haunted much modern theological endeavour between theology and both prayer and practice, the disjunction between thought about God and the movement of the heart toward God in transformed lives. Drawn from papers given at a Pusey House conference in 2015, the contributors to this collection explore what it means to know and love the Triune God, and how the knowledge of God can be a transforming and saving knowledge.

Editorial Reviews

Neither shying away from the difficulties of knowing God, nor from the discipline required to allow ourselves to be reshaped and reformed, the contributors show that the church is to be found where together we have accepted the divine invitation to inhabit the Trinitarian movement of giving and receiving love. They remind us that theology is a journey into the heart and mind of the triune God....In essays eloquent, elegant, playful, subtle and clear, we are shown that our prayer should be thoughtful and our thought prayerful. And the fruit of all our praying and thinking is a participation in a divine pattern of living in this world, albeit in all our messy glory.
