Abstract

It has been nearly forty years since Karl Rahner’s The Trinity was pub- lished in English. Since then, publishing houses and theological libraries have been inundated with texts on the doctrine of God. None has been able to ignore Rahner’s axiom: “The ‘economic’ Trinity is the ‘immanent’ Trinity and the ‘immanent’ Trinity is the ‘economic’ Trinity.” Many theologians, especially those in the Catholic tradition, find themselves in sympathy with Rahner’s position. Paul Molnar is quite critical of Rahner’s argument as well as the many who have followed him rather than the work of Karl Barth who argues from and for the ultimate freedom of God.
