Holy Trinity: Holy People
The Theology of Christian Perfecting
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Holy Trinity: Holy People is a wise and winsome trinitarian account of Christian perfection. Noble conceives of holiness not in individualist terms of isolation from the world, but as a communion of love, [as] participation in God's trinitarian love, which is essentially redemptive in character rather than judgmental. Anyone interested in what a trinitarian account of holiness could be need look no further than Noble's profound and compelling work."
--Elmer M. Colyer, Professor of Systematic Theology and Professor of Wesley Studies, University of Dubuque Theological Seminary
"Carefully contextualizing the vital doctrine of Christian perfection in terms of Scripture and church tradition, both Eastern and Western, Noble offers the reader a remarkably balanced assessment of John Wesley's articulation of entire sanctification that is sophisticated, informed by a number of theological streams, and wonderfully trinitarian. Due to its many fresh insights, this engaging book will, no doubt, foster a lively conversation and considerable reflection among all who love holiness."
--Kenneth J. Collins, Professor of Wesley Studies and Historical Theology, Asbury Theological Seminary
"This book is a landmark in treatments of Wesley's doctrine of Christian perfection. Be assured: this is no parochial performance. Noble's work does not just revisit the Wesleys of old; he integrates his critical assessment of their insights into a penetrating vision of the Triune God. Marked by a singular beauty of expression and structure, this work will become a benchmark in the field of Wesleyan and Methodist theology."
--William J. Abraham, Professor of Wesley Studies, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
