Paul Molnar argues that human freedom can be properly understood only in the light of God's freedom, and any understanding of the immanent Trinity that is not fashioned from the economic Trinitarian self-revelation will lead toward a dualistic, monistic or agnostic view of divine/human relations. Therefore any method that starts with experience and not explicitly with the word of God revealed will be seen to threaten a proper perception of both divine and human freedom.;Molnar argues that a properly conceived contemporary doctrine of the immanent Trinity will enable theologians to say something positive about God and God's relations with us in history without in any way making God dependent on history. In this book he analyses and compares Karl Barth's view of the relationship between the immanent and economic Trinity with the views of other contemporary theologians in order to explore what a proper understanding of divine freedom should look like today and how that view should develop in light of contemporary feminist and historicist approaches to the Trinity.
-Publisher

"Molnar analyzes and compares Karl Barth's view of the relationship between the immanent and economic Trinity with the views of many contemporary theologians. He holds that while God is and remains incomprehensible even in his revelation, he can be known as a very definite object in faith and by grace. Here is the true mystery of the triune God. God is not an object we can control but he is still Emmanuel, God with us. A sound doctrine of the immanent Trinity recognizes the freedom of God as the basis of our own human freedom and upholds God's distinction from his creation, thus avoiding the theological pitfalls of agnosticism, monism and dualism."--BOOK JACKET.
