Sanders' intro essay clarifies the way the doctrine of the Trinity functions in systematic theology. In other words, what is the doctrine of the Trinity for? McCall places the doctrine of divine simplicity next to the doctrine of the Trinity and asks whether they can work together. He's not convinced that the criticisms against divine simplicity are decisive, and so he hopes to have opened the door to more conversation. Holmes' essay on inseparable operations is historical, dogmatic, and biblical. I found it be an important and recent go-to essay on the topic. Kilby's essay is critical of social models of the Trinity and suggests a different way forward: an apophatic account. Ayres helpfully explains how knowledge of the Trinity relates to mystery in ways that does not disregard the need for clarity, but makes use of analogy to think carefully about God from his Word while also maintaining his incomprehensibility. I could go on, the but the remaining essays by Soulen (extending his argument from his recent book on the name(s) of God), Sumner (obedience and subordination in Barth), Strobel (Edwards' trinitarian aesthetics), and Sexton (missional movements as outworkings of a trinitarian theology of mission) are excellent as well.
This book is not only provides a rich account of trinitarian theology, but will introduce students into the core and varied discussions in recent reflections on trinitarian theology. I highly recommend it as well as the other books from previous LA Theology Conferences.
Thanks to Zondervan for the review copy.
