Rethinking the Mystery of God: In Relation to You and the World blazes a trail in the general quest to understand and explain God in a way that most people can appreciate, and hence, bring people closer to God. The book outlines in a systematic way how the quest to expound the mystery of God was carried out across the centuries and how it stimulated various heresies that rocked the unity of the Christian Church. Mention is made of various theologians and Church Councils that sought a solution to the embarrassing schism between the East and the West within the same Christian Church. The book also draws attention to the Filioque controversy. The “per filium” theology of the Christian East is shown to be the same or similar in meaning to the “filioque” theology of the Christian West. Some original thinking is also brought in through the challenging model of a triangular prism, a model that rethinks traditional and modern presuppositions about God and about the web of relationships within the Trinity and between the Trinity and the world. One of the landmark insights is to show how the universe is intimately tied up with God. And how total Reality is comprised of God and Externality (universe) according to a “relational index” of three-relational-one (3?1). This “relational index” also means that for whatever is “real,” God takes three-quarters whereas the universe takes only one-quarter.
