Trinity, Freedom and Love [ePub Ebook]

An Engagement with the Theology of Eberhard J¿¿ngel
  • By Piotr Malysz
By critically engaging Eberhard JA1/4ngel's doctrine of the
Trinity, this volume makes a broader, constructive contribution to contemporary
trinitarian thought.The argument
centers on the question - posed by the inconsistencies uncovered in JA1/4ngel's
doctrine of God - of how one can assert both divine freedom and the
inter-subjectivity of God's trinitarian self-determination. Can one maintain God's freedom in the
interest of divine spontaneity and creativity, while remaining committed to inter-subjective
vulnerability which the Cross entails as an event of divine love?
Malysz suggests that a resolution to this problem lies in
a logic of divine freedom, which, next to the trinitarian logic of love,
constitutes a different and simultaneous mode of trinitarian
relationality. To develop this logic,
Malysz draws on JA1/4ngel's understanding of human freedom as rooted in the
"elemental interruption" of the self-securing subject. Malysz thus not only brings JA1/4ngel's view of
divine freedom into correspondence with the anthropological effects that JA1/4ngel
ascribes to it, but, above all, offers an imaginative, new way of closely
integrating the doctrine of God and theological anthropology.
