This book makes a major contribution to contemporary theological and philosophical debates, bridging scriptural and metaphysical approaches to the triune God.* Bridges the gap between scriptural and metaphysical approaches to biblical narratives.* Retrieves Aquinas's understanding of theology as contemplative wisdom.* Structured around Aquinas's treatise on the triune God in his 'Summa Theologiae'.* Argues that intellectual contemplation is part of a broader spiritual journey towards a better understanding of God.* Contributes to the current resurgence of Thomistic theology in both Protestant and Catholic circles.ContentsAcknowledgmentsIntroduction1 Setting the Scene: Theological EndsChapter 1 Sacra Doctrina: Wisdom, Scripture, and Metaphysics1 Wisdom2 Theologizing as a Wisdom-Exercise3 Isaiah and St. John the Evangelist as ContemplativesChapter 2 YHWH and Being1 R.
