This book makes a major contribution to contemporary theological and philosophical debates, bridging scriptural and metaphysical approaches to the triune God. It bridges the gap between scriptural and metaphysical approaches to biblical narratives. It retrieves Aquinas' understanding of theology as contemplative wisdom. It is structured around Aquinas' treatise on the triune God in his "Summa Theologiae". It argues that intellectual contemplation is part of a broader spiritual journey towards a better understanding of God. It contributes to the current resurgence of Thomistic theology in both Protestant and Catholic circles.
