By Andrew Staron
Building upon the discoveries of modern scholarship, Andrew Staron reads Augustine’s De Trinitate now not as offering the Trinity as an idea to be grasped, yet particularly as a rational learn of the bounds of theological language and the opportunity of coming to understand the Trinity as a result of these limits. Human dependence on God’s initiative exhibits that the Trinitarian God of affection is knowable in simple terms via consciousness to how God’s self-revelation transforms and saves us. accordingly, to determine God, one seeks to mark love’s formative job in the center. Jean-Luc Marion’s rigorous description of the reward of affection bargains to Augustine’s theology a phenomenological texture during which the Trinitarian love given in revelation could be made incarnate in one’s lifestyles. The reward of Love provides a cause of desire that whereas coming to grasp “the Trinity that God is” could be very unlikely for people, it truly is made attainable by means of God’s antecedent present of affection, given within the missions Son and Holy Spirit, and iconically got within the particularity of one’s personal love.
