"In this work, Stanley Grenz continues to fill his role as a leading voice for the recovery of a vigorous Trinitarian theology. Rediscovering the Triune God is a model of careful and judicious exposition. The author has a fine ability to situate complex ideas in their theological context. The book is marked by a balanced discussion of each theologian's supporters and critics. It is ideal for academic courses in twentieth century and contemporary theology. Its style is well suited to theological students. Anyone wishing to learn about the basic trends of recent Trinitarian theology will find Rediscovering the Triune God to be an accessible and comprehensive review. Especially important is the book's ecumenical focus and its observation that the dominant themes of recent Trinitarian theology cut across traditional dividing lines. This book captures very well the sense that a major shift has taken place in Christian theology."

"Rediscovering the Triune God is a retrospective of the theological conversations, texts and critiques, of Protestant and Catholic theologians on the Trinity in the 20th Century. Dr. Grentz's presentation of these developments would provide a solid foundation for any course on Trinitarian theology. There is a clarity of thought and progression, and a spirit of openness that Dr. Grentz brings to his study that invites the reader into the discussion. This text may well serve to open new avenues of communication in inter-religious dialogue, helping to make sense of why Christians hold onto a belief in the Trinity."
