"Knowing the Triune God is the newest, and probably the best, exhibit of the promise of ‘catholic and evangelical' theology for the contemporary Christian church, and it appears not a moment too soon. Written by theologians from a variety of ecclesiastical backgrounds, it is a compelling example of what a theology that takes its starting point and orientation from the communion of saints actually looks like. Even more impressive is the authors' concern to locate theology in the church, the school of the Holy Spirit, rather than to promote their own approaches as the latest, and therefore the best, theological craze. Here is no faddishness but, rather, a sober attempt to recover a wisdom accumulated over many centuries, though in remission during much of the modern era of theology. The emphasis on knowing the triune God by participating in the faith and life of the church is particularly to be welcomed."
Joseph Mangina
"Collaborative efforts in theology are rare — fruitful collaborations rarer still. This splendid volume not only sketches a powerfully catholic, evangelical, and ecclesial vision of the Christian life, but it also describes those practices in which such a life may be fittingly lived. It deserves a wide readership both in the academy and in the church."
Geoffrey Wainwright
"Here comes a generation of writers that provides the best hope for North American theology in decades. The speculative, international recovery of trinitarian doctrine is now being grounded in the classical practices of the church, the retrieval and renewal of which should be helped by the kind of work presented in this volume. Whatever the differences of nuance that exist among these authors, they all aim with some success at being both evangelical and catholic — a welcome relief in academic theology from the tired liberalism of modernity and the faddishness of the self-styled postmoderns."
William C. Placher
"Too many Christians these days assume that technical theological discussions are of interest only to academics while theology of use to the church has to be ‘dumbed down.' How wonderful then to have a volume in which smart theologians use all their considerable learning and acumen in service of the life of the church — good thinking about hard questions that matter."
