A Trinitarian Response to Issues Raised by Peter Phan

The U.S. bishops and the Vatican have reacted critically to Peter Phan’s recent book, Being Religious Interreligiously. This article attempts to address the contended issues from a trinitarian perspective. It argues that the traditional trinitarian theology of East and West, which is largely based on the Fourth Gospel, is unable to handle these issues satisfactorily, and that a new approach, inspired equally by the Synoptics, is needed. This approach, Rahnerian in character, emphasizes Pneumatology and climaxes in Spirit Christology.
