‘Edmond Zi-Kang Chua’s brilliant book, ‘God-ness,’ ‘God-ity,’ and God, is worthy of being read not only by fellow Christians but any rational thinker interested in understanding the unique meaning of divinity. His meticulous scientific analysis based on Late Antiquity Christian readings, completed by writings from the late British theologian Colin Ewart Gunton; the late Scottish charismatic theologian Thomas Allan Smail; and the Eastern Orthodox metropolitan of Pergamon John Zizioulas, is a deep, powerful, and finally well balanced, reflection on the meaning of God within the Trinity dogma, seen not only as a substance, but also a dynamic, almost interactive, community. Edmond Zi-Kang Chua’s study shall be taken into consideration from now on within any theological dialog between Catholics and Protestants. It will help in cognizing also the Quaternity concept that many 17th Century Spanish Catholics, on the verge of heresy, created with joy adding the Immaculate Mary to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, it might be a very constructive element of theological debate between Christians and Muslims who believe in the oneness of God’.
