-Publisher

This book makes a major contribution to contemporary theological and philosophical debates, bridging scriptural and metaphysical approaches to the triune God. ^Bridges the gap between scriptural and metaphysical approaches to biblical narratives.^Retrieves Aquinas's understanding of theology as contemplative wisdom.^Structured around Aquinas's treatise on the triune God in his 'Summa Theologiae'.^Argues that intellectual contemplation is part of a broader spiritual journey towards a better understanding of God.^Contributes to the current resurgence of Thomistic theology in both Protestant and Catholic circles.
