Religious Pluralism, Christ and the Cosmos
On Not Believing in the Social Trinity
In Keith Ward’s book Christ and the Cosmos: A Reformulation of Trinitarian Doctrine (2015), he analyses theistic belief in a scientific context, working toward articulating a sense of the "cosmic Trinity" to help make theism more intelligible in the twenty-first century world.
At this event, Ward explicated differing and competing interpretations of the doctrine of the Trinity as he discussed why it still matters and how it fits into a scientific account of the universe. He addressed how such a doctrine can be articulated in a way that helps build understanding and bridges between Christians and believers from other faith traditions, and offered time for a discussion with the audience.
This event was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs, the Graduate Program in Religious Pluralism of Georgetown's Department of Theology, and the Ecclesiological Investigations International Research Network.
