Offsite Review: The Oxford Handbook of the Trinity

The Oxford Handbook of the TrinityThe Oxford Handbook of The Trinity is not available for kindle and the hardcover version is $131 used ($145 new, $150 suggested retail).  So I probably will not pick it up any time soon.  But the review is very positive and I will pay attention to used book stores and look around at my library for a copy of it.  It is reviewed by Nick Norelli at Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth blog.
