Participating in God
A Pastorial Doctrine of the Trinity
Paperback |288 pp
Participating in God claims that a doctrine of the Trinity cannot be developed in isolation from pastoral experience. It is not sufficient to view the persons of the Trinity as offering a mere example for human relationships; actual participation in this triune communion shapes both our knowledge of God and the pastoral practices that flow from it. Paul S. Fiddes develops a radical understanding of the 'persons' in God as nothing other than relations, or as movements of divine relationship into which we are drawn.
Essential reading for all those interested in Christian doctrine and pastoral care.
