About this book

This text crafts a trinitarian theology that reorients theology from presumptions about the immateriality of the Trinity toward the places where the Trinity matters—material bodies in historical contexts and the intersecting ways political and theological power structures normalize and marginalize bodies on the basis of material difference.

About the authors

Meredith Minister is Assistant Professor of Religion at Kentucky Wesleyan College, USA.

Reviews

"At last a book that places materiality at the heart of thinking about the Trinity and in so doing insists that all bodies become the locus for such thinking and the creation of theology. This work is creative and insightful and moves us beyond the static categories of Trinitarian theology. In my view a 'must read'." - Lisa Isherwood, Director, Institute for Theological Partnerships, University of Winchester, UK
