Unpacks the deepest truths of who God is in terms we can understand, helping us not only to describe God more accurately but to know Him, love Him and explain Him to our neighbours better. Of all the disciplines, the study of theology must be one of the most wonderful. What could be better than to meditate on the very nature and character of God? For the Christian then, the subject of the Trinity is the very heart of theological enquiry. It is this profound doctrine, the mystery of the three in one and one in three, entirely unique to the Christian faith that forms the basis of this book. Understanding the Trinity is of particular importance today when we are often in dialogue with our Muslim neighbours who see this doctrine as a fundamental weakness in the Christian faith. Roger Forster unpacks this dense and controversial subject with creativity and fresh revelation. Using accessible illustrations and metaphors, he seeks to put across deep truths simply, in a way that we can understand without losing the great wonder of the subject. He consistently draws us back to the nature and character of God as revealed to us in the Bible, helping us to weed out the ideas borrowed from other philosophies that often infect our thinking about God. Trinity helpfully traces a simple history of Christian thinking about the Trinity from the time of the Early Church until today, noting the impact that different emphases have had on the day to day life and practice of the church. Thus we are encouraged to see how getting our thinking straight is important and relevant to the way we live out our Christian faith. Theological enquiry and practical Christian living can never be fully divorced, and this book challenges us to think deeply about who God is and allow that revelation to change us so that we become more like Him. - Clear thinking on one of the central mysteries of the Christian faith - Useful for evangelism to those of other faiths
