He investigates in detail the approach of the German Lutheran theologian, Isaac A. Dorner (1809-1884) to this question.

Analysis of his arguments concerning the priority of the doctrine of God for Christian belief and dogmatics is given. It examines the form of his doctrine of Gods triunity, and gives an extensive study of how Dorners particular account of Gods triune identity informs the Christian conception of Gods relation to the world, first, as Creator and, second, as Saviour. In this process, it seeks to refocus attention on Dorner as a major figure in the development of modern theology.

The relationship between Dorners doctrines of the triune God and salvation is assesed. Dorners positive reconstruction of the Christian idea of God as Trinity provides helpful resources in delineating a non-competitive account of Gods relation to the world. This means that God is not confused with nor distant from the world. The eternal vitality of Gods immanent personality is the basis of His vital economic activity, which culminates in the incarnation of the Son. We follow the main tributories of Dorners arguments in System of Christian Faith, beginning with an analysis of his doctrine of God, via his development of the doctrines of creation, humanity, and the incarnation of the God-man.

An assessment is given of those doctrines which pertain to the way in which God brings salvation through Jesus Christ: sin, Jesus, and atonement. Norgate concludes by comparing Dorners achievements with those found in more recent theologies of atonement.
