    1. Ended the year right with the Trinity. The only reason this book isn't 5 stars is that it's highly technical and highly repetitive (we are talking about the Triune God's overflowing love for all eternity, after all), but if you want a primer on the Trinity, especially in contrast to the subordinationist heresy which is so prominent in conservative circles these days, this book does the trick.


    2. Not for the faint of heart or novice. While an outstanding book in every regard, Torrance's monumental work on the trinue nature of God presupposes important things for successfully navigating its pages: at least an elementary knowledge of 1) trinitarian controversies of the patistic era, 2) Greek, and to a lesser extent 3) Latin, and finally 4) modern trinitarian debates.As a postive monograph detailing the three in one and one in three ontic identification of God, Torrance devotes little time [...]


    3. This covers much of the same ground as his earlier *The Trinitarian Faith,* though with some new material. Such material, however, does not replace The Trinitarian Faith and if money is a factor, then get TTF instead. Torrance centers his argument around the homoousion. It guarantees how we understand the internal relations in the Trinity. Not only are the persons homoousion, but so are the relations. Only in Christ is God’s self-revelation identical with himself” (Torrance 1). In Christ God [...]


    4. Great book. Torrance offers many necessary correctives for Western Christian's in their doctrine of God. Still I'm never fully assured that he doesn't view the divine essence as a Person. This can be problematic since he explicitly denies that the Father is the Monarchy of the Godhead. To this end he claims the support of Gregory of Nazianzus, especially Or. 31.14. Not only is this a hotly debated passage (at least as patristic scholars rate hotness), but the best and most recent work on this pa [...]


    5. This an amazing book densely packed in every waycluding language. I doubt I got even 50% of what is offered here and will need to read this again. I have had the experience before with some writing by C. S. Lewis (The Four Loves, for example).The point here (and to say this is doing a terrible disservice to this book) is that the study of the bile is "a whole". The Trinity at the heart of the Christian Gospel, God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) reveling himself through Himself. The book ranges i [...]


    6. This book is mostly about the Trinity. While there is some good information in it, Torrance's style of writing is taxing. He writes very long sentences which are often reformulations of statements he has already made. The argumentation is not very linear, but rather circular in the sense that he repeats information before moving forward a bit, only to repeat previous information. Oddly, Torrance is aware of his writing style--and apparently does nothing to change it! In the preface, he acknowled [...]


    7. One of the densest books I have ever read Not just because of the writing style (though that too is difficult) but because the challenges in addressing such a rich mystery. This is a significant work, very important to any attempt at studying the historical, philosophical and biblical aspects of Trinitarianism - but honestly, I found it more edifying the second time through While this is a work of Dogmatics, his works on the _Incarnation_ and _Atonement_ are much more accessible and should perha [...]


    8. Some people love this stuff. I don't. I persevered well beyond the point demanded by charity, and in the end I spent several hours translating a couple of pages into English. I decided not to persist when several hundred words did, after careful perusal, actually appear to boil down to saying that God really is who he is. Life is too short for this.


    9. Incredible! Many great sections, but I especially enjoyed Torrance's engagement with Jürgen Moltmann in the last chapter. All around fantastic book.
