In Premodern Faith in a Postmodern Culture, Peter Drilling presents a how-to guide to assist believers in seeing how the process of coming to faith in the triune God of the Christian tradition is not only reasonable and authentic in its original development, but also continues to be relevant in light of modern and postmodern challenges. This work implements Bernard Lonergan's method to highlight the consistency of the Christian faith and includes various directions believers can take, both theoretical and practical, to apply faith in the Trinity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
What difference does believing in the Triune God make to human beings whose gift and task is to help create a world in which all may grow, indeed may flourish? Drawing from rich reserves of philosophical, creedal, liturgical, spiritual and theological traditions, Peter Drilling offers an understanding of the Trinity that is eminently practical. Of particular importance is his treatment of the kind of dialogue that can be promoted by a genuinely Trinitarian faith. -- Michael Downey, Author,Altogether Gift: A Trinitarian Spirituality
Peter Drilling has written a fascinating and much needed book, which allows us all to rethink the complex relationships of contemporary theology to pre-modern thought. -- David Tracy, University of Chicago.
If there is one theme throughout Peter Drilling's study of Christian faith in the triune God it is the inseparability of love and understanding....Both theoretical and practical, this text can provide a valuable resource in upper-level collegiate courses on the Trinity as well as in courses in seminaries and graduate level programs oriented to pastoral ministry. -- Phyllis H. Kaminski * Horizons: The Magazine of Presbyterian Women, Vol. 34, No. 2, Fall 2007 *
Peter Drilling's book rejects the 'either/or' thinking that has beset much recent theology: pre- vs. post-modern, traditional vs. contemporary, doctrine vs. experience. He replaces these threadbare garments with a new, thoroughly trinitarian weave: acknowledging past achievements, allowing new questions to arise, and recontextualizing beliefs in the light of both. In the process, he brings Christian theology into better dialogue with philosophy, the natural sciences, and world religions. Thoughtful and wide-ranging, yet readable and concise. -- David S. Cunningham, professor of religion, Hope College, and author ofThese Three Are One: The Practive of Trinitarian Theology
