Item description for Entertaining the Triune Mystery: God, Science, and the Space Between by Jeffrey C. Pugh...
Using one of the cornerstones of Christianity the mystery of the Trinity Jeffrey Pugh seeks to bridge the gap between ancient faith traditions and scientific inquiry, in part by celebrating that gap itself as the essence of God. Drawing on Plato, Irenaeus, the Cappadocians, and many others, Pugh asks us to think of God s energies behind the processes of creation and life, and the creator of all possibilities for those processes. This God also creates the range of possibilities for that process, taking the risk of allowing such a range, and suffering with us in some of the bad outcomes. Jeffrey C. Pugh is Professor of Religion at Elon University in Elon, North Carolina, and is the author of The Matrix of Faith: Reclaiming a Christian Vision.

Entertaining the Triune Mystery Mar 23, 2004
Reading this book is a risk because it could be life-changing. Pugh offers a vision of God that -- while actually quite orthodox -- is rarely taught or discussed in today's churches. He helps us to deconstruct our imperfect images of God so that we might see God for who God truly is, so that we might come to experience that ever-present, triune mystery. As one who has felt on the margins of the Christian faith, this book has served as both a comfort and an inspiration. I would like to second Pugh's claim in the preface that this is a book "for those who entertain the mystery of the cosmos and our place in it."
