Baik, Chung-Hyun. The Holy Trinity - God for God and God for Us: Seven Positions on the Immanent-Economic Trinity Relation in Contemporary Trinitarian Theology. Princeton Theological Monograph Series 145, Pickwick Publicatons, 2011.

In this important book, Chung-Hyun Baik explores one of the central issues in contemporary Trinitarin theology: the relationship between the economic and immanent Trinity. Engaging a wide variety of Trinitarian theologicans and contemporary philosophers, Baik offers a vital analysis of the ontological and epistemological issues that bear on a proper understanding of the doctrine of the Trinity. Noting that the meaning of mystery in the New Testament is Jesus Christ himself, Baik argues that, in order to rightly approach the question of the relationship between the immanent and the economic Trinity, it is necessary to understand the mystery of the divine being as centered in Christ himself. Moreover, Christ is not merely a device for resolving epistemological or ontological tension, but rather the fullness of the divine mystery, and as such, must be determinative of all such theolgoical and philosphical questions.
