The Triune God of Christian Faith

Front Cover
Liturgical Press, 1990 - 132 pages

Although the triune God is the heart of our faith, not much scholarship exists in recent years regarding it. The very depth of the mystery itself inclines us to silence. Also, feminist critiques of male symbols and language about the Trinity make it easier to say nothing.


This small volume takes a first step toward answering the need for contemporary scholarship on the Trinity. It "opens readers to the meaning of the triune God for our concrete human lives, and in giving a taste of the vast riches of this God, to make the reader hunger for more."
