The God of All Comfort: Trinity and Trauma

The God of All Comfort: Trinity and Trauma January 10, 2019

My colleague, Scott Harrower, has a new book about to release on God of All Comfort: A Trinitarian Response to the Horrors of This Age (Bellingham, WA: Lexham, April 2019). This is a book that combines the new area of trauma studies with the old area of trinitarian theology.

Here is the blurb:

How does God respond to trauma in a world full of horrors? Beyond their physical and emotional toll, the horrors of this world raise difficult theological and existential questions. Where is God in the darkest moments of the human experience? Is there any hope for recovery from the trauma generated by these horrors? There are no easy answers to these questions. In God of All Comfort, Scott Harrower addresses these questions head-on. Using the Gospel of Matthew as a backdrop, he argues for a Trinitarian approach to horrors, showing how God—in his triune nature—reveals himself to those who have experienced trauma. He explores the many ways God relates restoratively with humanity, showing how God’s light shines through the darkness of trauma.
