This book is about the problem of truth: what truth is, and how we can tell whether what we have said is true. Bruce Marshall approaches this problem from the standpoint of Christian theology, and especially that of the doctrine of the Trinity. The book offers a full-scale theological account of what truth is and whether Christians have adequate grounds for regarding their beliefs as true. Unlike most theological discussions of these issues, the book is also extensively engaged with the modern philosophical debate about truth and belief.

From Our Editors

Truth is something many people strive for. However, truth means different things to different people. So how can we tell if what we say is really true? In Trinity and Truth, Bruce D. Marshall examines the idea of truth from the standpoint of Christian theology. Marshall debates what truth is and whether or not Christians should regard their beliefs as the truth. This book provides great discussion questions about a hotly debated philosophical topic great for Bible study groups.

Editorial Reviews

"Marshall employs an account of truth that is so intimately linked to belief that it can be stretched for Christian purposes, in which truth is a person. Advanced graduate students an scholars only." Religious Studies Review Jan 2002
