Item description for The Trinity: An Interdisciplinary Symposium on the Trinity by Stephen Davis, S.J. Daniel Kendall & Gerald O'Collins...

This collection of essays is the result of a meeting of nineteen scholars from different universities, churches, and continents gathered in New York at Easter 1998 for the 'Trinity Summit'. They are experts in a variety of fields: the Bible, ancient Christian writers, ancient jewish writers, theology, philosophy, art, and preaching.

A well researched, skilfully argued, and at times provocative volume on on the belief at the very heart of Christianity: the Holy Trinity. Softcover, 393 pages. Oxford University Press.

Publishers Description
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. Biblical experts examine the scriptural roots of trinitarian doctrine, patristic scholars correct those who continue to misinterpret the trinitarian teaching of the Cappadocians and Augustine, and five scholars examine systematic and foundational issues like the viability of social models for the Trinity. The volume ends with a study of the Trinity in art and the challenge of preaching the Trinity today. The international reputation of the participants reflects and guarantees the high quality of this joint work.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Trinity: An Interdisciplinary Symposium on the Trinity?

an excellent volume on the Trinity  Mar 29, 2002
where to begin? this volume is absolutely packed full of excellent essays on the Trinity. divided into different sections (the Biblical witness; the Patristic witness; Systematic issues; Preaching the Trinity), this volume covers more ground than any other edition that i have come across, and combined with the absolutely stellar level of scholarship from all disciplines, the reader is in for a certain treat.
i have a few minor complaints, though. first, that there is no analysis of the FILIOQUE, and connected with this, that there is (as far as i could tell) no real voice for the Eastern Orthodox approach. finally, it seems as though modern defenses of the social model of the Trinity aren't given anything like a fair hearing.
but there is so much that is good in this book! the analysis of augustine's Trinitarian theology is (thank God) a breath of fresh air, and the same can be said for the analysis given here of the Cappadocian formulation. the high point of the book, for me, was van beeck's 'Trinitarian Theology as Participation', which gave a view of all existence and the universe in its totality as saturated in the Trinity.
an excellent book, i highly recommend it.
