Communicable Essence


[D]oesn’t Trinitarian theology claim precisely that God is a communicable being, that this is His essence?

Yes.

As I understand him, this is also the point that David Bentley Hart is making with his use of “infinity.”  God can commune with creation without threatening the creature/Creator distinction.

Christology solves this as well.
