Theology in Three Dimensions: A Guide to Triperspectivalism and Its Significance
4 in stock
Because God created all things with coherent unity, everything can be understood from the perspective of everything else. We experience the world in the context of our own bodies, but every day we broaden our understanding through the perspectives of others. Meanwhile, our omniscient God is also omniperspectival. Through His revelation, He allows us a glimpse of his own divine perspective.
What does this mean for us? One valuable dimension of this reality is that theological issues can also be helpfully viewed from multiple perspectives without compromising their unity and truth. In this introduction to his Bible study and theological method, John Frame teaches us to approach doctrine with three perspectives – situational, normative and existential – modeled on the Trinity.
“A clear and refreshing explanation of John Frame’s insightful approach to studying the Bible (and everything else!) from three different ‘perspectives.’ It is the fruit of a lifetime of thinking and teaching.”
