Offsite Review: The Quest for the Trinity

Holmes, Stephen R.   The Quest for the Trinity: The Doctrine of God in Scripture, History and ModernityI am interested in The Quest for the Trinity: The Doctrine of God in Scripture, History and Modernity as a corrective to some other modern theology movements around the trinity.  It is finally available for kindle and so I will probably pick it up soon.  Nick Norelli’s review is mixed, but positive enough in the areas that I am interested in that I still think I will pick it up.

There’s been a steady stream of books published on the doctrine of the Trinity over the last few decades. Many of them tell the same story about the “recovering” or “rediscovery” of the doctrine, which had allegedly been “lost” or “forgotten.” We’re often told that since Karl Barth and Karl Rahner there has been a “renaissance” of Trinitarian theology. Recent works (e.g., the multi-authored The Oxford Handbook of the Trinity) have rightly challenged this notion by pointing out that the Trinity has never ceased to be a topic for reflection among theologians in any era.
