Introduces the doctrine of the Trinity, examining the work and thought of contemporary theologians throughout the world.

Publishers Description

Unique for its breadth in studying theologians not only from Europe and North America but also from Latin America, Asia, and Africa, this landmark volume introduces the doctrine of the Trinity, examining the work and thought of contemporary theologians throughout the world. Veli-Matti Karkkainen provides an overview of the biblical roots of the doctrine, discussing both the idea of plurality in God in the Old Testament and the rise of Trinitarian understandings in the New Testament. He details the historical growth of Trinitarian traditions and delves into specific theologies, both Western and non-Western. Also including both an introductory consideration of the doctrine's significance and a concluding assessment and agenda for future thought, Karkkainen's "The Trinity" is the broadest and most comprehensive contemporary study on the Trinity available.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Survey of Trinitarian theology  Oct 17, 2009
I found this one when searching for books about what is probably THE core concept in Christian theology. When the book arrived, I found that the book is'nt one Trinitarian theory (so to speak), but a review or survey of present-day Trinitarian doctrine, with an historic description of the development of the ideas and chapters on among others Barth, Rahner, Moltmann, Pannenberg, non-Western theologians, feminist and liberation theologies. Not quite what I thought (found some others like Gerald O'Collins "The Tripersonal God", Karl Rahner: The Trinity", Colin Gunton: "Father, Son & Holy Spirit", and a big one: Robert Letham: "The Holy Trinity") but nevertheless a good and useful book.
Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen has written a whole series of theological surveys or global introductions: "The Doctrine of God", "Christology", "Pneumatology" and "Ecclesiology" -- all as good as this one.
A Global Trinity  Jun 25, 2008
At the beginning of the third millennium, few events in contemporary theology are as exciting as the rise to prominence of the doctrine of Trinity. Adding to the growing literature in this renaissance, Veli-Matti Karkkainen, a Finnish theologian teaching at Fuller Theological Seminary, has written a magisterial and ground breaking volume which offers "a critical theological dialogue and assessment of the state of Trinitarian theology of the third millennium in light of biblical and historical tradition and ever-expanding global theological enterprise." (xix) What makes this comprehensive study truly unique is the author's genuine attempt to offer a fair and balanced exposition as well as critical dialogue with contemporary Trinitarian theologies from five different global contexts.

The book is divided into five major parts consisting of 27 chapters. After briefly examining the biblical roots and historical growth of the doctrine of Trinity in parts 1 and 2, no less than eighteen contemporary Trinitarian views are discussed in parts 3 and 4 from both Western and non-Western perspectives. The five representative European theologians discussed are Karl Barth, Karl Rahner, John Zizoulas, Jurgen Moltmann and Wolfhart Pannenberg. The seven American theologians include Robert Jenson, Catherine M. LaCugna, Elizabeth Johnson, Millard j. Erickson, S. Mark Heim, Ninian Smart and Steven Konstantine. And the six non-Western Trinitarian views represented are those of Leonard Boff and Justo Gonzalez (Latin American), Jung Young Lee and Raimundo Panikkar (Asian), and C. Nyamiti and A. O. Ogbonnaya (African).

The last part of the book consists of a single but helpful chapter in which the author assesses key contributions and insights emerging out of the global conversation and possible direction that Trinitarian discourse might take in the future. Global, ecumenical, and dialogical, there is no other text on Trinity that presently compares with this break-taking and comprehensive study.
