“Most theologians, even in modernity, have sought to ‘repair’ and ‘reform’ the traditional (or ‘catholic’) understandings of God, Trinity, and incarnation to make them coherent under the assumption that retaining the orthodox categories is a prerequisite for doing Christian theology. It is thus refreshing to read the work of Steven Nemes, who subjects these categories and concepts to withering critique. This is a bold and courageous work of revisionist metaphysics.”
—David W. Congdon, senior editor, University Press of Kansas
“In Trinity and Incarnation, Steven Nemes addresses some of the most intricate problems in Christian theology. The precision of his analysis and the edge of his critical acumen make this important reading even for those who will not fully adopt his conclusions.”
—Johannes Zachhuber, professor of historical and systematic theology, University of Oxford
“If truth is our main concern, we must be willing to critically evaluate even central catholic traditions. Using the concept of ontological priority, Trinity and Incarnation mounts powerful arguments against those doctrines as normally understood. There are important challenges here also to divine simplicity and creation ex nihilo. Most Protestants are to various degrees catholic, but Nemes offers us here a post-catholic theology. This interesting and challenging book will, rightly, generate a lot of discussion!”
—Dale Tuggy, author of What Is the Trinity?
