Product description
This book makes a major contribution to contemporary theological and philosophical debates, bridging scriptural and metaphysical approaches to the triune God. * Bridges the gap between scriptural and metaphysical approaches to biblical narratives. * Retrieves Aquinas's understanding of theology as contemplative wisdom. * Structured around Aquinas's treatise on the triune God in his 'Summa Theologiae'. * Argues that intellectual contemplation is part of a broader spiritual journey towards a better understanding of God. * Contributes to the current resurgence of Thomistic theology in both Protestant and Catholic circles.
Product Reviews

"! lucidly written, thoroughly documented, an astonishing achievement." Fergus Kerr OP, Blackfriars, Oxford "A substantive contribution to Trinitarian theology, and an exemplification of how theology ought to be done." William T. Cavanaugh, University of St Thomas "Matthew Levering is not content with merely explaining the genuine teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas but also makes him an active partner in todaya s theological debate. With both a critical mind and a deep sense of Christian tradition, Levering offers the most stimulating introduction to Aquinasa s Trinitarian theology available today." Gilles Emery, OP, Professor of Dogmatic Theology, University of Fribourg " eloquently and clearly setting Aquinas over against many of the most influential voices in theology today, and showing his relevance by liberating him from stereotypicals dismissals, Scripture and Metaphysics lays a path for further investigation that will be fruitful for those who follow it." Journal of Ecclesiastical History
