    DescriptionThe Trinity is a core area of Christian belief. This "Guide of the Perplexed" offers a complete overview of the theological history of the concept of the Trinity as well as new insights.Although the doctrine of the Trinity is a core Christian belief it remains contested in terms of how it is conceptualised and expressed. This essential "Guide for the Perplexed" expounds different conceptual models and the technical language used to express these models. It examines attempts to 'apply' the doctrine in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, e.g. in relation to ecumenical dialogue, with its main approach focusing on hermeneutics and ontology of relationality. Providing a complete overview, as well as new insights into the area, "Trinity: A Guide for the Perplexed" is an essential read for students of Christian Theology.Continuum's "Guides for the Perplexed" are clear, concise and accessible introductions to thinkers, writers and subjects that students and readers can find especially challenging - or indeed downright bewildering. Concentrating specifically on what it is that makes the subject difficult to grasp, these books explain and explore key themes and ideas, guiding the reader towards a thorough understanding of demanding material.
