Item Description...
Overview
In These Three Are One, David Cunningham articulates a Trinitian perspective that challenges a wide range of modern assumptions about God and the created order. Cunningham seeks to rehabilitate the Augustinian tradition of locating the "triune marks" left upon the world by its Creator. This book explores ancient rhetoric, communication theory, and literature as well as more traditional theological sources to illuminate not only the Christian doctrin of God, but also its radical critique of contemporary culture. This book confounds the popular notion that the doctrine of the Trinity is esoteric and irrelevant and describes how it is at the very heart of Christian life and thought.

Publishers Description
The doctrine of the Trinity has recently been rescued from relative obscurity in Christian theology, but its profound implications have not yet been fully realized.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
How Can Three Be One?  Mar 3, 2005
While I am not a theologian myself I picked up this book and found myself immersed in the controversies behind the mysterious idea of the Trinity. In the Bible the Trinity is revealed, but it was apparently the early Christian fathers who elaborated on the sketchy, elemental Triune of "Father, Son, and Holy Spirit" that we learned as children. And just as children ask puzzledly, "How can three different people be the same?" their older friends and counsellors are also still puzzled on how best to understand what seems on the one hand as a lovely metaphor for relationality, but to others with a more fundamental view, it is an actual fact of the universe.

Cunningham notes that many of nature's little miracles seem to draw their inspiration from the three-pronged trident that is the Trinity. When John Donne prayed, "Batter my heart, three-personed God," he was bringing a metaphysical twist in to what had been heatedly argued over in Renaissance days. THESE THREE is similarly divided into three parts, and no one would say that the three parts resemble each other in any way.
 
The title is too good to be true  Dec 6, 2003
A point that I am sure is lost on the majority of readers of this book is that the title is a quote from 1 John 5:7 KJV. What is interesting is that this text is one of the best documented cases of textual corruption in the NT. If this is an example of the so-called "scholarship" of the author, what are the chances that the myriad applications made to varied areas of life will prove to be of any benefit? The latin expression "falsum in uno, falsum in toto" definitely applies here.
 
Is there anything this book isn't about?  Jan 25, 2000
Cunningham's scope in These Three Are One is breathtaking. He covers thinkers as diverse as Augustine, Wittgenstein and Toni Morrison. He shows the Trinity to be pivotal to our understanding of issues as diverse as sexuality, parenting and worship space. Yet despite the breadth, depth does not suffer - and there is a lightness of touch that should please both non-specialists and specialists alike. I suppose Cunningham's all-inclusive outlook makes perfect sense in a book which aims to show the doctrine of the Trinity to be "the central claim of the (Christian) faith, in which all other elements find their center".
