New Release: The Holy Trinity in the Life of the Church

Cover ArtIn this volume, a noted theologian brings together an ecumenical roster of leading scholars to explore trinitarian faith as it is concretely experienced in the life of the church.

Drawing upon and fostering renewed interest in trinitarian theology, the contributors–including Brian E. Daley, John Behr, and Kathleen McVey–clarify the centrality of trinitarian doctrine in salvation, worship, and life.


“This book brings together an all-star cast of theologians to explain the role of the Holy Trinity in the life of the church. It also represents the very best of Eastern Orthodox ecumenism. No one interested in the doctrine of the Trinity can afford to overlook this work.” – George Hunsinger, Princeton Theological Seminary

“Anatolios has gathered an excellent array of scholars to explore various contours of this most profound mystery of the Christian faith. And they start where they should, with Christian liturgy, for it is out of the experience of worship–of baptism, of meditation on the Scriptures, of Eucharist–that the trinitarian faith of Christians is rooted, is experienced, is savored.” – William Harmless, SJ, Creighton University

“For those seeking to answer the question of how our life in the church and the world grows out of our faith in the Trinity, this book–written by scholars who have listened carefully to those in the early church who were most concerned to make this connection–provides food for deep thought and reflection. It is a pleasure to recommend it.” – Donald Fairbairn, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

“Convinced that ressourcement opens the path to a revitalized trinitarian theology, the authors trace the connections between liturgy, Scripture, theology, and spirituality in patristic literature, offering fresh readings of major figures, in the face of which conventional truisms fall away..” – William P. Loewe, Catholic University of America
