This interdisciplinary study is the result of an international and ecumenical meeting of nineteen scholars held in New York at Easter 1998: the Trinity Summit. Biblical experts examine the scriptural roots of trinitarian doctrine, patristic scholars correct those who continue to misinterpret the trinitarian teaching of the Cappadocians and Augustine, and five scholars examine systematic and foundational issues like the viability of social models for the Trinity. The volume ends with a study of the Trinity in art and the challenge of preaching the Trinity today. The international reputation of the participants reflects and guarantees the high quality of this joint work.

This seminal collection of high standard essays. ( Natalie K. Watson, Reviews in Religion and Theology)
The first section of this collection contains three remarkable essays which show that dialogue between systematic theologians and biblical scholars is possible and important. ( Natalie K. Watson, Reviews in Religion and Theology)
The patrisitc essays are especially good, demolishing some extravagant claims for the Cappadocians, brilliantly re-reading Augstine (a typically excellent piece from Michel Barnes) and suggesting some fruitful new lines for understanding Gregory of Nyssa (another very original piece from Sarah Coakley). ( Rowan Williams, The Tablet, 10/06/00.)
David Brown's piece on artistic representations of the Trinity gives a taste of his magisterial book on revelation and imagination ... Plenty to welcome then. ( Rowan Williams, The Tablet, 10/06/00.)
a symposium of high quality ... highly stimulating ... often probing current interpretations. ( TB, Regent's Reviews, 16, Autumn 2000.)
The Trinity, a collection of essays gathered from a seminar in the USA, shows 14 distinguished scholars, American and European, wrestling hard with the history and appropriate present expression of Trinitarian doctrine. Most familiar, perhaps to Anglican readers will be Sarah Coakely, now at Harvard, who writes a highly technical piece on Gregory of Nyssa's Trinitarian thought; Gerry O'Collins, who writes a characteristically clear opening chapter setting out past and present problems in the area of Trinitarian reflection; and David Brown, who sets a number of artistic representations of the Trinity in their social, artistic and philosophical context ... a text for specialists, or, at least, for students reading theology, and for ordinands in training. ( Dr John Davies, Church times, 22/9/00.)
No other recent book brings together biblical, systematic and historical contributions... much of this book provides some long-overdue demythologising of what have become commonplaces of recent theology. For this alone it deserves a warm welcome. ( Rowan Williams. The Tablet 10 June 2000.)
An interesting, if technical, discussion of some key trinitarian themes. ( Stephen Carr, Theology)
