“The value of this book is not to be found only in its important constructive theological proposals. Almost as important as these is his persuasive and illuminating reading of Hegel and his ability to show Hegel’s significance for the address of major contemporary theological issues…. Those who desire a solid and intellectually exciting introduction to Hegel’s significance for contemporary theological issues could do no better than spend some time with this book.”
– Gordon D. Kaufman, Mallinckrodt Professor of Divinity Emeritus, Harvard Divinity School

“In this book, Hodgson uses Hegel’s dialectical triadic logic to define what he calls the triune figuration. His ‘Trinity’ is God the One (rather than the Father), Love to and in the world (rather than the Son), and Freedom in history (rather than the Spirit)…. Jesus in history is the Christian symbol of this historicized God. History is viewed not as a line of evolution nor a circle of recurrence but an open spiral.”
– Robert Paul Roth, Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology, Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota

“I am convinced that Hodgson’s position is developing a deeply thought-out and valuable attempt to tackle a major aporia in contemporary theology. Rather than a history of salvation, Hodgson prefers a history of freedom….”
– Maurice Wiles, Regius Professor of Divinity Emeritus, Christ Church, Oxford University
