The key to the doctrine of the Trinity is the combination of transcendence and personality in the biblical portrayal of God. This idea is traced through Old Testament, New Testament, the Church Fathers, medieval scholasticism, the Reformation and early modern theology, and three 20th century theologians (Barth, Pannenberg, and Macquarrie).
