Radical Trinitarianism: Index of Posts

This series of posts takes its impetus from the introductory and supplemental theses I posted previously on Radical Trinitarianism.  In the next few posts to come, I will attempt to offer an incohate theological exploration of dogmatics from a radically Trinitarian orientation.  I had not originally intended to turn this into a series on dogmatics, but after thinking further through the idea of Radical Trinitarianism, I found that this line of reasoning was quite fruitful, at least insofar as my own theological instincts go.

What follows will be a series of brief explorations in Christian dogmatics that seeks to be radically Trinitarian in all dimensions, and yet to avoid a certain faddishness or mere Trinitarian glossiness to what is being said.  I hope for this exploration to yield two things.  First, I hope it shows the importance and fruit of allowing Trinitarian theology to radically shift our mode of thinking in all areas of dogmatic theology.  Second, I hope that it shows how Christian dogmatics, when properly Trinitarian in form and content, are more oriented toward doxology, liturgy, and celebration which is the telos of all theological reflection.

This, then is an outline of the posts to come in my Radical Trinitarianism series.
