The Trinity is grounded upon God's historical self-revelation in Jesus Christ. It is presented in this work as teaching which is implicit in the New Testament revelation and in the worship of the Early Church, rather than as a logical derivation from other aspects of Christian doctrine. Adopting an holistic approach, Professor Torrance explains the inter-relatedness of the three Persons - Father, Son the Holy Spirit - and their dynamic Communion in the Triune Being and Nature of God. Combining immense academic range with new theological perspectives, Professor Torrance expounds in a rigorous way the basic teaching of the ancient Catholic Church and builds a significant bridge between ancient and modern, Catholic and Evangelical theology.

First published in 1988, The Search for the Christian Doctrine of God is still considered by many scholars to be the finest work on the Arian Controversy. Examining scholarly works on the Controversy and many original texts, Professor Hanson, provides a clear understanding of how the traditional and historic doctrine of God as the Holy Trinity reached its most mature and enduring form. The author is not primarily concerned to defend the orthodox position itself, but rather to discover and examine the formation of that orthodoxy. The history of the events - the Councils, the interventions of the Emperor, the rivalries of sees, the behaviour of bishops, the varying fortunes of the different schools of thought and their leaders - is interwoven with the progression of thought and doctrine during the sixty years of the Controversy. Professor Hanson sees the problem of the reconciliation of two concepts which were both part of the very fabric of Christianity - monotheism and the worship of Jesus Christ as divine.

"God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him" (1 John 4:16). In this famous passage, St. John expresses the heart of the Christian faith and the essence of the Christian image of God. In the same verse, he also offers a kind of summary of the Christian life: "We have come to know and to believe in the love God has for us." In God Is Love, Anthony Kelly, CSSR, takes this phrase as a concise and profound expression and unpacks it for thinking Christians today. He explores seven ideas that are necessarily implied in the love that God is-the Trinitarian terms, Father, Son and Holy Spirit; the cross and resurrection as events within the paschal mystery; the church as the revelation of God's love being worked out in history; and finally, the ultimate hope for eternal life and heaven itself.

Mockett has taken the twofold instance of Abraham’s trouble and deliverance by God, and applies this pastorally to the Christian walk. He shows through the historical narrative of Abraham’s testing, that God does bring his people into trouble, and will deliver them. He gives a number of reasons why God brings his people into trouble, and what the Christian duty is while under such testing or proving. He dissects the nature of Christian trouble masterfully: that such afflictions and trials are light and short, momentary in the great scheme of redemption and our salvation; and that they are a means by which Christians are made fit for mercy. God prepares his vessels by a refining fire to make them fit to hold his grace, peace and mercy for our good. Mockett demonstrates the true reality that God will rescue his people from such troubles, in his time and providence, and shows why he rescues them: to vindicate his people from their enemies, and to manifest his glorious attributes of knowledge, power, truth, faithfulness, and goodness. Mockett has taken an historically and theologically packed section of the Bible in Genesis and masterfully, deeply and encouragingly applied that to today’s believer. This work is among the best of his expositions because Mockett felt this topic was a regular course found in the Christian’s daily walk. This is not a scan or facsimile, has been updated in modern English for easy reading and has an active table of contents for electronic versions.

Do you have questions about salvation and the Trinity that seem to go unanswered by your spiritual leaders? I know I did. I studied and prayed with the Lord to help me find the answers. I truly believe it was His desire for me to write this book once I invited Jesus into my heart. This does not make my book perfect or even just the way He wants it. I am only an ordinary layman. However, without the Holy Spirit’s help and encouragement, I would not have completed this book. I am giving this book back to Him to use toward His kingdom’s work.

How Greek Philosophy Corrupted the Christian Concept of God brings profound new insights to the Trinitarian doctrines of "orthodox" Christianity. With clear and precise documentation, the book shows how these doctrines migrated into early Christianity from Greek philosophy. The various aspects of Trinitarian belief are isolated, linked to their Greek sources, and carefully analyzed to show they differ radically from biblical teaching. The writings of early church fathers, portrayed in their historical context, show that during the second century, theological concepts taught in Platonism were adopted as Christianity struggled to end Roman persecution. Emperor Marcus Aurelius, a famous Stoic philosopher, was putting Christians to death because their belief did not conform to the Hellenized religion of the day. The book shows that the early Church Fathers sought to save their people's lives by redefining the Christian God in Greek terms. Their efforts brought metaphysics to Christianity and ushered in concepts like the Trinity. After presenting the historical setting in which these philosophical errors were embraced as Christian doctrine, the book compares orthodox Christian theology today, called "classical theism," to biblical teachings. The book identifies how Greek phillosophy has influenced major atributes of God taught in classical theism. The book constitutes a major challenge to those who accept the tenants of classical theism but do not know the many aspects of their doctrine that are based on Greek philosophy.

Written by one of the twentieth-century's foremost modern Trinitarian theologians The Christian Doctrine of God remains a classic ground work for scholars and students alike. In the book Thomas F. Torrance offers a detailed study of the most profound article of the Christian faith - the Holy Trinity. Torrance adopts a holistic approach when examining the inter-relatedness of the three persons - Father, son, and Holy Spirit - and their dynamic Communion with the Being and Nature of God. Combining immense academic range with his characteristically fresh theological perspectives, Torrance builds a significant theological bridge between ancient and modern, as well as between the Roman and Protestant theology; he engages deeply with the Church Fathers and discusses the ontological nature of God. Here Torrance conveys a simple message - the doctrine of the Trinity is the doctrine of God. This Cornerstones edition includes a new introduction written by Professor Paul D. Molnar, in which Molnar sets Torrance's classic work in its modern context and considers how it continues to influence the way we think about the Trinity today.

Who is the God in whom Christians believe? Is he just a figment of the human mind as critics of religion claimed in the nineteenth century and as crusading atheists assert again today? Since the beginnings of rational thought the brightest minds among humanity have attempted to assert that God does indeed exist. But even the so-called proofs for God's existence always started with the assumption that there is someone to prove. As soon as we move beyond that which is within space and time mere proofs or disproofs no longer suffice. Both believers and unbelievers live to a certain degree by faith. Yet religion is inextricably connected with human history. When we journey through the landscape of religion and witness its gradual unfolding we soon realize that not all religions are equal. Though they may be witnesses of the same God, the way they talk about God is so different that this not only leads to very different concepts of God but also to different approaches to life on this earth. At the end of this long journey we finally arrive at the Judeo-Christian tradition which witnesses to the God in whom Christians believe. This book seeks to show how this belief matured and what difference this belief still makes today.

This book is written for ordinary people with enquiring and skeptical minds about the Christian God. The author defends the Christian faith (apologetics) by covering a wide spectrum of topics like the credibility and compatibility of the Bible with science, the Big Bang, evolution and the age of the earth. Christianity is an intellectual logical religion and you can believe in God the creator and also accept that God caused the Big Bang to happen, use evolution to create and although human beings may originate from the great apes they are unique and special once God made them into His image by putting his spiritual soul in them. The individual today gets more than ever bombarded with attacks on Christianity by prominent atheists, scientific discoveries, different religions and philosophies. The intellectual levels of individual’s increases all the time and as knowledge increases often so does more questions arise even for believing Christians like why is there so much pain and suffering in the world. Considering the limited time people have, this book attempt to save time for busy individuals who cannot take a book or two out on every topic that bothers them. Covering many controversial questions and arguments with counter arguments a strong case is being made that the arguments against the Christian God fail.
