Item description for Deus Trinitas: The Doctrine of the Triune God by David Coffey...

Recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in the doctrine of the Trinity, following a long period in which it was considered irrelevant to the rest of theology and to the challenge of Christian life. In this book, David Coffey claims that this resurgence is caused by a renewed appreciation of the fact that salvation itself has a Trinitarian structure. He argues that we cannot understand salvation without a solid understanding of the Trinity.
Coffey considers the full range of issues surrounding this central doctrine of Christian faith. Viewing the doctrine of the Trinity in its historical and ecumenical context, he seeks to arrive at a balanced vision that incorporates the insights of both the Western and the Eastern Churches. In particular, he wants to keep in sight both the immanent Trinity (the Godhead considered in itself) and the economic Trinity (that is, its role within the economy of salvation). In Coffeys own model of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit is seen as the objectivization of the mutual love of the Father and the Son. This idea is most closely associated with St. Augustine and Richard of St. Victor. Coffey, however, takes it much further, presenting it as an explanation of the origin of the Son and the Holy Spirit and of the manner of operation of the Trinity in the economy. From this model, he is also able to derive a suggestion for resolving the ecumenical problem of Filioquism vs. Monopatrism (concerning the procession of the Holy Spirit)-- the issue that has divided East from West for nearly a millennium.
Presenting a new perspective on a topic of renewed theological interest, this comprehensive study has important implications for ecumenical discussions of the Trinity.

Reviews - What do customers think about Deus Trinitas: The Doctrine of the Triune God?

DEUS TRINITAS: THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRIUNE GOD is significant in many factors. Among these are the observation that salvation cannot be fully understood without a solid understanding of the Trinity, for which he articulates a soteriology firmly founded on the economic Trinity, that is, a model of salvation which articulates man's reconciliation to the Father through the Son by means of the Holy Spirit.

In addition this book explores Trinitarian theology as it has developed since the inception of the Church at Pentecost through the milennia into the present day; from the traditions of Eastern Orthodoxy and Western Catholicism up to the feminist and liberation theologies which pervade Protestantism today. In addition, David Coffey adresses filioquism versus Monopatrism -a conflict over a clause in the Nicene Creed that was accepted and added by the West but opposed by the East, the sources of this creedal division between the two great apostolic traditions of East and West, and offers a means to breach the divide. ALL OF THIS WHILE KEEPING THE IMMANENT AND ECONOMIC TRINITY IN SIGHT!

As such, David Coffey has undertaken an ambitious project, as he considers the full range of issues surrounding one of the central doctrines of Christian faith. One gets a sense that he overreaches himself in seeking to address a subject expounded upon for centuries in a 196-page book. Many topics cannot be covered entirely and as such tend to be somewhat simplified despite the copious use of technical language.

I found his attempts at reconciliation between filioquism and Monopatrism laudable for the careful attention given to both positions, yet I believe that David Coffey failed to appreciate that the Filioque question is closely tied with other discords bwetween the Roman church and Orthodoxy, among these the Papacy's claim to universal jurisdiction. Further dialogue in the same spirit as Father Coffey's is needed to breach the artificial divide amongst the brethren in Christ.
