9780198269939: The Trinity: An Interdisciplinary Symposium on the Trinity

This interdisciplinary study is the result of an international and ecumenical meeting of nineteen scholars held in New York at Easter 1998: the Trinity Summit. They are experts in fields such as the Bible, ancient Christian writers, ancient Jewish writers, theology, philosophy, art, and preaching. This is a well researched, skillfully argued,and at times provocative volume on the belief at the very heart of Christianity: the Holy Trinity.

Review:

`This seminal collection of high standard essays.'
Natalie K. Watson, Reviews in Religion and Theology

`The first section of this collection contains three remarkable essays which show that dialogue between systematic theologians and biblical scholars is possible and important.'
Natalie K. Watson, Reviews in Religion and Theology

`much of this book provides some long-over-due demythologising of what have become common places of recent theology. For this alone it deserves a warm welcome ... the final essay by Marguerite Shuster on trinitarian preaching is a supberbly original (and often witty) survey of the
eyebrow-raising oddities that pass for sermons on the Trinity in an uncomfortably large number of respectable organs of mainstream churches.'
Rowan Williams, The Tablet, 10/6/00.

`O'Collins's introduction is a masterly account of the state of the question, offering some judicious remarks on the difficult issue of gener-specific language.'
Rowan Williams, The Tablet, 10/06/00.

`The patrisitc essays are especially good, demolishing some extravagant claims for the Cappadocians, brilliantly re-reading Augstine (a typically excellent piece from Michel Barnes) and suggesting some fruitful new lines for understanding Gregory of Nyssa (another very original piece from
Sarah Coakley).'
Rowan Williams, The Tablet, 10/06/00.

`David Brown's piece on artistic representations of the Trinity gives a taste of his magisterial book on revelation and imagination ... Plenty to welcome then.'
Rowan Williams, The Tablet, 10/06/00.

`The Trinity, a collection of essays gathered from a seminar in the USA, shows 14 distinguished scholars, American and European, wrestling hard with the history and appropriate present expression of Trinitarian doctrine. Most familiar, perhaps to Anglican readers will be Sarah Coakely, now at
Harvard, who writes a highly technical piece on Gregory of Nyssa's Trinitarian thought; Gerry O'Collins, who writes a characteristically clear opening chapter setting out past and present problems in the area of Trinitarian reflection; and David Brown, who sets a number of artistic representations
of the Trinity in their social, artistic and philosophical context ... a text for specialists, or, at least, for students reading theology, and for ordinands in training.'
Dr John Davies, Church times, 22/9/00.

`a symposium of high quality ... highly stimulating ... often probing current interpretations.'
TB, Regent's Reviews, 16, Autumn 2000.

`Most of the essays in this collection will chiefly be of interest to students and professional theologians ... there are one or two contributions that deserve a more general readership.'
Bishop Paul Richardson, Church of England Newspaper 10/3/00

`No other recent book brings together biblical, systematic and historical contributions... much of this book provides some long-overdue demythologising of what have become commonplaces of recent theology. For this alone it deserves a warm welcome.'
Rowan Williams. The Tablet 10 June 2000.
