About this Book

This book makes a major contribution to contemporary theological and philosophical debates, bridging scriptural and metaphysical approaches to the triune God.


  • Bridges the gap between scriptural and metaphysical approaches to biblical narratives.
  • Retrieves Aquinas's understanding of theology as contemplative wisdom.
  • Structured around Aquinas's treatise on the triune God in his 'Summa Theologiae'.
  • Argues that intellectual contemplation is part of a broader spiritual journey towards a better understanding of God.
  • Contributes to the current resurgence of Thomistic theology in both Protestant and Catholic circles.
