The Father's Spirit of Sonship

O F M Weinandy

$95.00

Hardback
This book attempts to reconceive the Trinity. Its thesis is that the Father begets the Son in or by the Holy Spirit. The Spirit proceeds from the Father as the one in whom the Son in begotten. While some contemporary authors have proposed a similar view, no-one has done so in such a complete and systematic fashion. Reconceiving the Trinity in this way has a number of advantages. Firstly, it is more in keeping with the New Testament proclamation, and thus it more closely aligns the economic and immanent Trinity. Secondly, it overcomes the inadequacies of traditional trinitarian formulations, in both Eastern and Western Churches, which incorporate erroneous philosophical presuppositions. Thirdly, it offers a resolution to the filioque controversy, which may be acceptable to both the Latin and the Orthodox Churches. This book is, therefore, highly ecumenical in importance. Fourthly, it gives a more active and essential role to the Holy Spirit within the immanent Trinity, something that has been lacking throughout the trinitarian tradition. The true subjectivity or personality of the Holy Spirit is more clearly defined.

- Publisher The current rebirth of trinitarian theology is one of the most exciting developments in modern theology. Weinandy's book builds on what has been achieved so far, but takes it a dramatic stage further, offering a reconception of the Trinity that may finally overcome the filioque controversy that has helped to divide Eastern and Western Churches for more than a thousand years.
