Additional Information

The ground-breaking treatment of the doctrine of the Trinity by one of the most important theologians of the century is here reprinted on the 30th anniversary of its orginal publication. In this treatise, Karl Rahner analyzes the place of the doctrine of the Trinity within Catholic theology and develops his own highly original and innovative reading of the doctrine, including his now-famous dictum.

This is an excellent edition of Rahner's "The Trinity." Included is an informative introduction by the late Catholic Trinitarian scholar Catherine Mowry Lacugna (to be read both before and after finishing the main book itself). An extremely valuable glossary is also included along with a rather short index of topics. The 6 page glossary is probably worth the price of the book itself.
Rahner maintains that the bulk of religious literature would remain virtually unchanged if the doctrine of the Trinity was deemed false. This slim volume is designed to rectify this situation. Ironically Rahner rarely returns to the subject of the Trinity in his writings after this volume; even his magnum opus "Foundations of Christian Faith" has few references to the doctrine. Regardless, this volume is important as it sounds the trumpet that the Catholic Church believes this doctrine is important and necessary. The 20th Century is replete with theologians from both the Protestant and... Read more
Karl Rahner was one of the major theologians of the twentieth century, who ironically often described himself as a theological amateur. Rahner's career as a teacher took place largely in secular universities (oddly enough, his attempt for a doctorate in philosophy under the auspices of the Jesuits failed; one has to wonder by what standards he was being judged), but he never lost his church-focussed orientation for theology, which had both a magisterial academic tone and a practical liturgical side.

Rahner's work is systematic and vast, so it is somewhat ironic that most of his work concerning the subject of the Trinity (a fairly central concern for most Christians, particularly catholic/orthodox ones) is contained within this small text of barely more than 100 pages. Rahner's concern about then-prevailing ideas of the Trinity was that they had become too disconnected from 'reality', that they bordered upon (if not outright journeyed into) fanciful speculation with no...

Considered by many to be the most influential Catholic theologian since Thomas Aquinas, Rahner in his seminal book The Trinity criticizes Christians for often being "mere monotheists." In fact, laments Rahner analyzing the contemporary theological scene of his day, "[w]e must be willing to admit that, should the doctrine of the Trinity have to be dropped as false, the major part of religious literature could well remain virtually unchanged." (pp.10-11) Rahner wanted to alter this situation by showing the intimate connection between the Christian doctrine of the Trinity and Christian understanding of salvation and life. One of Rahner's essential proposals has influenced all subsequent theology, both in Catholic and Protestant circles: "Rahner's Rule,"(fa term coined by the Lutheran student of Pannenberg, Ted Peters in the 1980's) which states that the economic Trinity is the immanent Trinity, and the immanent Trinity is the economic Trinity. In other words, how God is from eternity... Read more
