Item description for Invocation and Assent: The Making and the Remaking of Trinitarian Theology by Jason E. Vickers...

Overview
In the seventeenth century the adoption of a new rule of faith forever changed the way many English-speaking Protestants perceive the doctrine of the Trinity. Instead of the proper personal name by which Christians come to know and love their God, English-speaking Christians increasingly began to think of the Trinity as a network of propositions in need of evaluation for rationality and intelligibility. Suddenly, it was no longer clear that the Trinity mattered for salvation. Invocation and Assent by Jason Vickers charts the effects of this crucial shift in the identity and function of the rule of faith. Examining this turning point in seventeenth-century theological thought, Vickers illuminates the origins of indifference to the Trinity found in many quarters of Christianity today.

Publishers Description
The adoption of a new rule of faith in the seventeenth century significantly changed the way English-speaking Protestants perceive the doctrine of the Trinity. Having been the proper personal name by which Christians came to know and love their God, the Trinity became primarily a rational construct and as such no longer clearly mattered for salvation. In Invocation and Assent Jason Vickers charts this crucial theological shift, illuminating the origins of indifference to the Trinity found in many quarters of Christianity today.
