A Comparison with Augustine and Bonaventure

image of Journal of Reformed Theology

Without a doubt, the Dutch minister O. Noordmans was one of the precursors of the twentieth-century renaissance in a theology of the Trinity. In this article I examine Noordmans’ theology of Trinity and the related theology of history. I attempt to locate Noordmans’ position in the theological tradition by means of a comparison with Augustine and Bonaventure. Noordmans’ theology of Trinity has a trinitarian-pneumatic character and intends to stir up eschatological longings. It clears the way for God to speak anew through his Spirit and it brings about a historical consciousness in the confession. In spite of its stress on the Spirit, Noordmans’ theology is Christ-centered. But the church, which was previously a union in caritas, has had to pay the price for this concentration on the Spirit. In Noordmans’ theology the church is a broken figure.
