Stephen Holmes offers the reader a clear and thorough examination of the doctrine of Testament to the present day.
Taking the late twentieth century revival of the doctrine of the Trinity as a context, doctrine from the biblical text to the present day. The book traces the exegetical and philosophical debates that led to the settling of the ecumenical doctrine of the Trinity in the fourth century, and then explores how this doctrine was developed, questioned and received throughout history.
Stephen R. Holmes (Ph.D., King's College, London)is a Baptist Minister and Lecturer in Theology at the University of St Andrews, Scotland.
Presently he is working on a book on the theology of John Calvin, and a popular level book on the atonement, offering a cautious defence of penal substitution. He plans further work on the atonement, including conference papers, contributions to books, and a monograph, on the doctrine of God; this will begin with a monograph on the history of Trinitarian doctrine, but will focus on differing estimations of the relationship between Trinitarian and Christological dogma, and the perfections of God.
