CTBI write on their website:
Is the doctrine of the Trinity an irrelevance? Or is it of vital importance to the life of the churches?
In 1983 the British Council of Churches set up a Study Commission on Trinitarian Doctrine which grappled with these questions and other issues. It was prompted to do so by:
- the need to set the charismatic movement's witness to the Spirit in a Trinitarian context
- the theological concerns of the Orthodox members of the BCC
- work done by the World Council of Churches' Faith and Order Commission
- Vol.1: The Report of the BCC Study Commission on Trinitarian Doctrine Today
- Vol.2: A Study Guide on issues contained in the report
- Vol 3: A Selection of papers presented to the Commission
The second edition is now available, combining the three publications from the work of the Commission - a Report, a Study Guide and a Selection of Papers - in a single volume for the first time.
