Hofmann (1810-1877) was one of the most significant theologians of the nineteenth century and perhaps the century's most influential Lutheran theologian. Becker introduces us to Hofmann's trinitarian view of God. According to Hoffman, God freely chose to give God's self out of divine love. Becker's book centers on Hofmann's understanding of history. In Hoffmann's trinitarian kenosis the eternal God has become historical by self-emptying God's self into Jesus. For Hofmann, world history can only be understood within the historical self-giving of the triune God who is love. Thus, for Hoffmann all of history is salvation-history, a kind of history that embraces and fulfills God's purposes in the world.
