The concept of the 'social Trinity', which posits three conscious subjects in God, radically revised the traditional Christian idea of the Creator.
It promoted a view of God as a passionate, creative and responsive source of all being.
Keith Ward argues that social Trinitarian thinking threatens the unity of God, however, and that this new view of God does not require a 'social' component.
Expanding on the work of theologians such as Barth and Rahner, who insisted that there was only one mind of God, Ward offers a coherent, wholly monotheistic interpretation of the Trinity.
Christ and the Cosmos analyses theistic belief in a scientific context, demonstrating the necessity of cosmology to theological thinking that is often overly myopic and anthropomorphic.
This important volume will benefit those who seek to understand what the Trinity is, why it matters and how it fits into a scientific account of the universe.
