Announcing the publication of Robert Doran, SJ’s new book, The Trinity in History

Jan 16, 2013     Posted under: Books

Robert Doran, SJ’s latest book, The Trinity in History: A Theology of the Divine Missions, was published by the University of Toronto Press in 2012.

According to the Lonergan Studies Newsletter:

“The Trinity in History is the first volume in a new series by Robert M. Doran that uses the thought of Bernard Lonergan to develop a unified field structure for systematic work in theology. Building on his successful and thought-provoking Theology and the Dialectics of History and What Is Systematic Theology? Doran works out a starting point for a contemporary theology of history and proposes a new application of the ‘psychological analogy’ for understanding the Christian doctrine of the Trinity.

The Trinity in History also enters into conversation with contemporary philosophical emphases, especially with the mimetic theory of noted anthropological philosopher René Girard. Doran suggests several refinements of Lonergan’s notion of functional specialization – developing a perspective for including the data of various religious traditions in theological construction, and establishing this theory’s relevance for contemporary interreligious dialogue.”
