Shawn Varghese Theology 1050 C  Dr .  Paul D .  Molnar December 3, 2007 Migliore’s discussion on the Doctrine of the Immanent Trinity Throughout the life of a Christian, he or she undergoes many problems, troubles, and difficulties that question everything they know . A true Christian, when undergoing such hardships, will always seek God and find refuge in Him . In the same way, when a theologian yearns to discover more about theology, they should start and constantly refer back to the doctrine of the Immanent Trinity . The doctrine of the immanent Trinity, a cornerstone of the Christian faith, is basically the idea that God eternally exists as the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit . This doctrine illustrates how God should be the center of our thinking . This serves the purpose of defining our object of worship and source of truth, the triune God . In his discussion of the Trinity, Migliore makes many points, both positive and negative . Positively, Migliore starts his discussion with Christ . “In other words, the starting point or root of Trinitarian faith is the good news of the love of God in Christ that continues to work in the world by the Holy Spirit . ” (Migliore, 67) But Migliore doesn’t stay consistent, especially in his discussion of ‘depth grammar’ and social analogy . Migliore ultimately fails to recognize that the Trinity in itself is able to define God and cannot be replaced by relationships .

As mentioned before, Migliore starts of his discussion on the Trinity well, speaking of God in a specific way . “Christian faith and theology do not speak of God in a general and indefinite way; they speak of God concretely and specifically” . (Migliore, 66) He also speaks of biblical text referring to the triune God . Migliore supports the definition of the trinity by writing how the trinity is one . “Scripture affirms from beginning to end that there is but one God .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
