ABSTRACT
The article discusses on the question of Christian philosophers and theologians on how to reconcile their belief in three fully divine Persons with their monotheism. The Social Trinitarian strategy argues that monotheism is secured by certain relations that obtain among them eventhough the divine Persons are not the same as God.
