Review:

`Review from other book by this author 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.

`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.

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

`The international reputation of the participants reflects and guarantees the high quality of this joint work. The variety of disciplines represented, the ecumenical character of the participants, and procedures adopted... set the volume somewhat apart from earlier joint works on the Trinity.' Gregorianum, Vol.81

`a stimulating and challenging read, well suited to the needs of the minister seeking some fresh insights and approaches to a doctrine at the heart of life and faith ... There is a helpful introductory summary of each essay provided at the start of the book. Here is a high quality and accessible fare on which to dine, an excellent buy for the minister to keep up to date and glean ideas for preaching and pastoral insight.' Regent's Reviews 14, Autumn 1999

`encourages further reflections on the mystery which lies at the heart of our faith.' Maryanne Traylen, Catholic Herald

`thoroughly professional theology. ... Here, in these essays, we have Christian theology at its best, intellectually demanding and engaged with issues of central importance - a good combination.' The Tablet, 23 August 1997
