Overview

Unity in the Triune God focuses on the ecumenism of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America with its full-communion partners—the Presbyterian Church (USA), the Reformed Church in America, and the United Church of Christ (1997); the Episcopal Church (1999); the Moravian Church in America (1999); and the United Methodist Church (2009). Together, these ecumenically active denominations have shown in their full-communion agreements that the doctrine of the Trinity and the church’s common Trinitarian confession are not meaningless relics from ancient times, but rather are dynamic and many-sided ecumenical resources that can be used for several functions in full-communion agreements. The goal of this study is to reveal the differing ways in which to utilize this ecumenical potential of the Trinitarian faith.

The Logos Bible Software edition streamlines and enhances your study. Bible passages link directly to your English translations and original-language texts, and important theological concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches by topic to find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about faith, Bible interpretation, justification, and more.

Praise for the Print Edition

Tavast opens fresh possibilities for reimagining the implications of a robust Trinitarian ecclesiology for the life of the church. The book is accessible to those new to the ecumenical movement, yet will be appreciated by those who have long been involved in a quest for greater church unity.

—Robin J. Steinke, dean of the seminary and professor of ethics and public life, Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg

Tavast provides the kind of detailed analysis that ecumenical theology needs today: careful, scholarly, and sympathetic. That the Trinity provides the foundation for the unity of the church is too often an unexamined cliché.

—Michael Root, professor of systematic theology, The Catholic University of America

This is a unique and creative application of key Trinitarian theological claims . . . demonstrating the importance of rich, nuanced, and theological thinking for the life of the church in the twenty-first century. It sheds new light both on Trinitarian doctrine and on the role it plays in ecumenical dialogue.

—Kristin Johnston Largen, associate professor of systematic theology, Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg
