Divine Multiplicity

This chapter suggests how the doctrine of the Trinity invites us into ways of speaking about all that matters to us that honor—even value—the limits of our theological claims. It does this by exploring what the classical trinitarian formula of “the one that is three” and “the three that is one” tells us about everything. It argues that the doctrine of the Trinity shows us how our appreciation for a tail, an ear, or the trunk of an elephant can be deepened—not diminished—when the elephant as a whole is spoken of, boldly.

Keywords:   Trinity, trinitatrian theology, Trinitarian formula
