Q again plunges his main characters into an extensive theological discussion. At least they don't end up alienating each other this time.
- What do you make of Phyllis Tickle's idea about the church having a rummage sale on its doctrines every 500 years or so? (see Footnote 9 on Page 45.) If it's true, should it happen at all? Should it happen more often? Are we living in such a time today? If so, what do you think the church needs to get rid of?
- This chapter is not only about the Trinity. It's about the place of theology generally and, historically speaking, why the early church's theology might have became what it was. Does this make sense to you? Why or why not?
