The Social Trinity – Annotated Reading Guide


As I have been writing my book manuscript on the practice of conversation, I have been reading quite a bit on social trinitarianism, the theology rooted in the conviction that the three persons of the Trinity exist in an eternal conversation with one another. (I recognize that this perspective is not without critique, but it is a helpful way of imagining the Trinity when one wants to make a case for the importance of human conversation!) 

Here is a short, annotated reading guide to the books I have been reading.

[ Contemporary Trinitarian Theology ]   [ Jurgen Moltmann ]
[ Other Social Trinitarians ]   [ Critical Engagements ]

Although Rea does a helpful job in overviewing trinitarian theology, this essay can get pretty dense with his use of philosophical logic, and feels at times like the mystery of the Trinity is being reduced to logical statements about the Trinity.
