Lewis Ayres offers a new account of the most important century in the development of Christian belief after Christ. He shows how the doctrine of the Trinity was developed, and in particular argues that a conception of God's mysteriousness and spiritual progress towards understanding is central to that doctrine. He also proposes that modern theologies of the Trinity fail to appreciate the depth and power of Nicene trinitarianism.

Anthony Meredith SJ, Irish Theological Quarterly impressively learned and very wide-ranging work.

Maurice Wiles, The Journal of Theological Studies The author's extensive erudition and knowledge of primary and secondary sources...make his achievement almost as remarkable as his initial ambition... This approach to pro-Nicene theology offers some illuminating insights... I maintain my stance on the opposite bank, but am glad to be able to salute a book of such good scholarship and stimulus from the other bank.

Andreas J Kostenberger, Faith and Mission, Vol. 23, No. 2 [A] meticulously researched monograph.

Johan Leemans ...this is a marvellous book that reaches its goals in an admirable way.
