Knowing and the Trinity: How Perspectives in Human Knowledge Imitate the Trinity
2 in stock
Every human being has a distinct perspective and experiences truth from this viewpoint. If God exists in three persons, as the Bible teaches, is it possible to discern epistemological perspectives that originate from this mystery? Once we understand that God is Trinitarian, we can see numerous reflections of his Trinitarian character in general and in special revelation.
Vern Poythress is one of a growing number of theologians who have developed and used perspectival triads to further our knowledge of God. This book explores the relationship between numerous triads and God’s Trinitarian character, and shows that many triads reveal analogies to the Trinity. Understanding these analogies will help readers perceive the fundamental connections between our Trinitarian God, the Bible, and our created world.
“It is a privilege to serve as the doorman to welcome readers into the remarkable world of reflections that Dr. Vern Poythress provides for us in this substantial work. . . . [He] undertakes the task of helping us to see the sheer wonder of God as we reflect on his self-testimony. . . . We want to be able to say with Jeremiah, ‘Let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord’ (Jer. 9:24). In Knowing and the Trinity, Vern Poythress helps us to do precisely this. . . . I bid you to explore and enjoy!” --- Sinclair B. Ferguson
