The new trinitarian thinking takes a great step forward in this book. It may well be the future of Christian theology.' Jurgen Moltmann
In this book the author proposes a three-way conversation between theology, science and pastoral ministry. His approach draws on a Trinitarian understanding of God as a relational being of love, whose life 'spills over' into all created reality, human and non-human.
By locating human meaning and purpose within God's 'creation-community' this book offers the possibility of a transforming engagement between those in pastoral ministry and the scientific community. Trinitarian relationships are to be modelled in the pastoral life the church, we are to image the intimate inter-relationships...the perichoresis of the Triune God.

Bruce discusses what we know about the history of nonPauline Christianity in the first century. Judiciously drawing upon material from the whole of the New Testament he relates it to other early Christian literature in order to provide a highly readable outline of an important area.But as he warns this book does not study the literature for its own sake. Instead it focuses on the leaders of early nonPauline Christianity with their associates from whom the literature provides indispensable evidence.The topics covered areChapter 1 Peter and the ElevenChapter 2 Stephen and Other HellenistsChapter 3 James and the Church of JerusalemChapter 4 John and his Circle
