The revival of Trinitarian studies in the twentieth century ushered in a new era of theological innovation. The renewed and dedicated articulation of the Trinity as a doctrine in its own right is indeed noteworthy, but more important and praiseworthy are the recent endeavors of theologians in integrating the doctrine of the Trinity with other Christian doctrines and with the many variegated aspects of the life and ministries of the church. Today, it is common to encounter the term "Trinitarian" being used as a modifier: Trinitarian worship, Trinitarian ecclesiology, etc. This book presents Thomas F. Torrance as a participant theologian in this integrative paradigm. Because Torrance argues that the Trinity is "the ground and grammar of theology," his doctrine of salvation is consistently Trinitarian. But how did he formulate his unique Trinitarian soteriology? This book attempts to spell this out.

It covers key themes and concepts, offering an alternative to introductory texts on the Trinity that are arranged historically/chronologically. The book incorporates majority world theology, engages important debates in contemporary biblical studies, and draws on neglected historical figures. It also contains a glossary of trinitarian terms and an annotated bibliography of major works on the doctrine of God.

Graham Hill's pioneering classic remains the seminal work on missional ecclesiology. The bestselling first edition redefined theology for the missional church. Hill builds biblical foundations in conversation with major theologians, including Sarah Coakley, John Zizioulas, Stanley Hauerwas, Miroslav Volf, and Jurgen Moltmann. In this major update, he offers new insights and provides fresh examples of missional churches. In the first edition, Hill interacted with twelve major theologians to build a missional ecclesiology. In this thoroughly updated edition, he interacts with sixteen major theologians from the Western world. This edition includes five new chapters and an expanded treatment on the key convictions of global missional theology. It also offers a new study guide that has been uploaded on an innovative website linked to this book. This expanded edition now becomes volume 1 in a series on missional ecclesiology. In volume 2, Hill will turn our attention to voices from the Majority World. Known for his groundbreaking approach to theology--theology for the global missional community--Hill shows how God is releasing his global church to mission, across all cultures and Christian traditions. This extensive update to Hill's influential work offers pioneering theology and practices that will continue to shape the global missional church for generations. Contributors: 1.

The contemporary trinitarian paradigm in systematic theology has been internationally well-known since the time of Karl Barth and Karl Rahner and, particularly, since the contribution of their famous successors. Many of them, Wolfhart Pannenberg and Robert W. Jenson among others, have intentionally shown in their writings what the general ecumenical relevance of the findings of trinitarianism might be. However, the academic research of ecumenism has not yet fully investigated how ecumenically-oriented trinitarian theology has been factually applied in varying ecumenical relationships and agreements. Unity in the Triune God focuses on the ecumenism of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America with its full-communion partners--the Presbyterian Church (USA), the Reformed Church in America, and the United Church of Christ (1997); the Episcopal Church (1999); the Moravian Church in America (1999); and the United Methodist Church (2009). Together all these ecumenically active denominations have shown in their full-communion agreements that the doctrine of the Trinity and the church's common trinitarian confession are not meaningless relics from ancient times, but rather are dynamic and many-sided ecumenical resources that can be used for several functions in full-communion agreements. The goal of this study is to reveal the differing ways in which to utilize this ecumenical potential of the trinitarian faith.

Recasting the Heart in the Triune God

Recasting the Heart in the Triune God

The person and work of Jesus Christ brought forth the foundation of salvation, and Christ demonstrated the paradigm of Christian living. The Holy Spirit works upon the faculties of the soul. He moves the heart and affections of a person.

John Owen (1616-83) is considered to be the theologian of the affections. Seventeenth-century England faced by a great tribulation due to antinomianism, Neonomianism (or moralism), and antitrinitarianism. Owen was sensitive to his circumstances. His writings were mainly polemical, yet he also wrote treatises on practical living in the Christian faith. The idea of affections arises from his theological tradition and from his argument against antinomianism, Neonomianism, and antitrinitarianism. For Owen, Christians are moved by divine communion with the triune God. The person and work of Jesus Christ brought forth the foundation of salvation, and Christ demonstrated the paradigm of Christian living. The Holy Spirit works upon the faculties of the soul. He moves the heart and affections of a person. He infuses a new habit of grace to obey the Word of God, to mortify sinful tendencies, and to live unto God with heartfelt trust in the Lord. The divine communion with each person of the Trinity and the affections is inseparable related. This thesis investigates the historical context of Owen, and it surveys what animated Owen to embrace the idea of the affections. On a macro-level, this thesis aims to present the role of the affections in relation to Owen’s theology on sanctification. It examines his view of the affections in regard to divine communion, mortification, and vivification. On a micro-level, this thesis will argue that Owen’s view of the affections protects him from the error of synergism. He did not teach a cooperative process between God and human beings in salvation. Instead, he believed that Christian who has faith in communion with the triune God is faithful with heartfelt trust and affections because Christ dispenses grace to Christians. This idea of the affection brought forth Christians to have active participation in divine communion and sanctification.

Because Torrance argues that the Trinity is ""the ground and grammar of theology,"" his doctrine of salvation is consistently Trinitarian. But how did he formulate his unique Trinitarian soteriology? This book attempts to spell this out. ""A masterly survey of Torrance's deeply evangelical and Trinitarian soteriology. Drawing on extensive reading and a host of golden theological nuggets from his unpublished sermons, this book is a wonderfully comprehensive and compelling account of the salvation that is God in Christ through the Spirit. A book to be treasured, not just for its content and vision, but for the richness of its information and sources."" --Robert T. Walker, Professor, University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom ""In this erudite and thought-provoking work, Dick Eugenio provides the reader with an impressive articulation of some of the underlying currents of Torrance's theology, which in the area of soteriology Eugenio elaborates more fully than Torrance did himself. Of particular interest is Eugenio's consideration of the distinct role of God the Father in the salvific economy, an area that is generally neglected in most studies of soteriology. Essential reading for anyone interested in Torrance, the doctrine of the Trinity, and soteriology."" --David R. Law, Professor, University of Manchester, United Kingdom Dick O.

A contribution to the end of the Church knowing itself as the body of Christ. Irving articulates a theology of the Church as that which participates in all that Jesus is in his vicarious humanity by the power of the Spirit. This is developed through a dialogical (or covenantal) frame that has its focal point in Christ, in whom the faithful love of God toward creation and the faithful love of creation toward God is actualized. The Church as the body of Christ participates in the mediatorial work of Jesus Christ. Each chapter explores a different element of this participatory ecclesiology. This book offers a constructive ecclesiology, built from the ground up on the foundation of a dialogical perspective, which has participation in Christ as its controlling center. This foundation provides the basis upon which an exhilarating vision of the Church can be built, to encourage Christians to cherish the Church as the body of Christ which participates in the triune communion through being included into the Son by the power of the Spirit and comes to reflect the triune God in its own structures.
