Reviews

Eleazar S. Fernandez
--United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities
"Truly an amazing work. One cannot help but be amazed at Veli-Matti Karkkainen's breadth and depth of knowledge of the Christian and other faith traditions as well as his ability to weave the various voices into a coherent, hospitable, and inclusive Christian constructive theology. . . . "Trinity and Revelation" is a major breakthrough in the field!"
Stephen Bevans, SVD
--Catholic Theological Union, Chicago
"Karkkainen's systematic theology, while firmly rooted in the evangelical theological tradition, is wonderfully and warmly ecumenical, frankly Christian but still open to the insights and practices of other religious ways, and widely inclusive of Christian thinkers from all contexts and cultures. This is a new kind of theologizing, one done in a postmodern key yet remaining faithful to the treasures of our premodern and modern past. Karkkainen's breadth of scholarship is amazing. I will await the next three volumes in this groundbreaking project with considerable impatience."
Frank D. Macchia
--Vanguard University
"While not neglecting his rootedness in the Christian faith, Karkkainen casts a fresh light on the topics of revelation and Trinity by opening up the conversation to the challenges of religious pluralism. The global reach of this theology is implicitly pentecostal in the broadest and richest sense of the term."
"International Bulletin of Missionary Research"
Karkkainen interacts with a vast number of interlocutors, always critiquing and reshaping their logic and arguments. . . . His style demands very close reading. Once his voice is heard, however, it pays off handsomely.
"Ecumenism"
Karkkainen engages Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism in sympathetic and critical mutual dialogue while remaining robustly Christian in his convictions.
