East/West Summit on the Holy Trinity Held in Moscow. Theologians and philosophers, typically rivals, synergized in their pursuit of truth and understanding regarding this central, unifying Christian belief, demonstrating respective strengths in marvelous complementary array. The next best thing to being there are the papers that were presented and polished for this volume.
"This anthology presents an excellent blend of philosophical and theological perspectives that keep the doctrine of the Trinity in its crosshairs. While noted analytic philosophers use an array of analytical tools to critique and defend the logical consistency of the Trinity and assess its models, philosophers and Russian Orthodox theologians alike shower us with insights from historical sources such as the Book of Revelation, the Church Fathers, Aquinas, the Cambridge Platonists, and the Post-Moderns. Along the way they remind us that the doctrine of the Trinity is richly rooted in the faith and practices (worship, liturgy, iconography, and missiology) of the Church. The volume demonstrates that philosophers and theologians from different traditions can indeed learn from each other."
