Subtitle: A Trinitarian Perspective

The issue of grace-nature is foundational to theology. Problems concerning the distinction came to a head in the work of Henri de Lubac. Yet de Lubac began his investigation by eschewing a theological approach to the issue. Rahner argues that only a Trinitarian God can be a self-communicating God. From this perspective then the solution to the problem of divine self-communication (grace) resides in a properly Trinitarian context. This paper will argue that a more substantial response to the issue of grace-nature can be found through the work of Lonergan on the Trinity, using the so-called four-point hypothesis.
