Knowing the Name of God: A Trinitarian Tapestry of Grace, Faith, & Community
Roderick Leupp shows us that, far from a theological puzzle reserved for professional theologians, the trinitarian name of God leads every believer into the very substance and nature of God. Here we encounter the divine self-communicating love, eternally generated by Father, Son and Spirit. It is "God's self-interpretation offered in sacrificial love for our salvation". The whole tapestry of Christian faith, community and worship is woven through with the person and work of God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Knowing the Name of God is an engaging and profoundly contemplative guide to relearning the name of God. It invites us to know God's name not simply as "doctrine" but as God's self-expression, a feast given for us to taste, ponder, remember and receive with delight.
