The conversation continues, as we get into to the specifics of Dr. Hasker’s “social” Trinity theory.
Dr. Hasker answers many questions, including:
- How is it that these three divine selves are one God, and not three?
- What is “perichoresis”?
- What does it mean to say that their actions respecting the cosmos are “undivided”?
- What role does the contemporary metaphysical concept of “constitution” play in the theory?
- Can a trinitarian convince a Jewish or Muslim theologian that the Trinity really is self-consistently monotheistic?
- In the New Testament, isn’t the one God the Father, rather than the Trinity?
