Have you ever groaned inwardly at a question like this? Many of us find the doctrine of the Trinity – that God is three persons sharing one nature – difficult to get our heads round, and frankly a bit embarrassing. What is more, we seem to get by without thinking about it too deeply.
But in reality, the Trinity is at the heart of all that Christians believe. The nature of God as a Trinity gives shape to all Christian truth, and to the gospel that we believe and proclaim. And rather than be a source of embarrassment, properly understood, it should fill us with joy.
Tim Chester will take us deeper into understanding the thrilling triune nature of God. In short accessible chapters he takes us through the Bible’s teaching on the Trinity; gives us an overview of the important arguments over the trinity that have taken place throughout Christian history; and lays out the practical implications for our Christian lives.
