"The word God, said Martin Buber decades ago, "is the most heavy-laden of all human words. None has become so soiled, so mutilated." Twenty-first-century discourse and action often perpetuate that lack of reverence. In this volume Joseph Bracken shows us a better way." "He begins with Christianity's roots in Judaism and the inherent struggle to explain the reality of three persons in God who is one. He allows readers to engage in the lively and fruitful trinitarian debates of the early church and discover how the classical doctrine of the Trinity has shaped the church through the centuries. He offers a solid theological treatment of the history of the doctrine of God and its relevance for Christians today - for dialogue between Christian men and women, between Christianity and other religions, and between religion and science." "Systematic theology at its best, God: Three Who Are One helps us find unexpected unity and consensus in a world full of troubling differences. Along the way, Bracken urges us to "pray as well as think" and to let rational reflection lead to praise and worship, thereby giving the doctrine of the Trinity its due reverence and care."--BOOK JACKET.
