By Matthew Levering

This publication makes an important contribution to modern theological and philosophical debates, bridging scriptural and metaphysical techniques to the triune God.

  • Bridges the space among scriptural and metaphysical ways to biblical narratives.
  • Retrieves Aquinas’s knowing of theology as contemplative knowledge.
  • Structured round Aquinas’s treatise at the triune God in his ‘Summa Theologiae’.
  • Argues that highbrow contemplation is a part of a broader non secular trip in the direction of a greater realizing of God.
  • Contributes to the present resurgence of Thomistic theology in either Protestant and Catholic circles.
