A reissue of a brilliant and accessible introduction to Trinitarian thought. Colin Gunton argues that the theology of the Trinity has profound implications for all dimensions of human life. Here Professor Gunton explores the theology of the Trinity. Central to his work is his argument that the doctrine should offer ways of articulating the being of God and of the world so that we may be better able to live before God and with each other.

"A fresh perspective on a classical theological topic. Theologians most of all, but philosophers of religion and historians of Christianity as well, should profit from his clear and critical insights."
