There are several outstanding conservative volumes on the Trinity in print today, but Malcolm Yarnell gives us one thats organized unlike any other. The conclusions found in this volume are conservative, baptistic, and supported by some of the finest theologians today/5.

      A difficult but fundamental concept within Christianity, the Trinity is the belief that God is three separate persons but is still a single God. The doctrine of the Trinity is the Christian belief.   As Robert Letham observes in his new book, "For the vast majority of Christians, including most ministers and theological students, the Trinity is still a mathematical conundrum, full of imposing philosophical jargon, relegated to an obscure alcove, remote from daily life" (p. 1). In , the Roman Catholic theologian Karl Rahner made a now famous comment along similar lines, saying, Author: Keith Mathison.

    In the Paradise Trinity there is absolute unity despite the eternal identities of the co-ordinates of God. ~ The Urantia Book, God is unlimited in power, divine in nature, final in will, infinite in attributes, eternal in wisdom, and absolute in reality. But all these characteristics of the Universal Father are unified in Deity and universally. Trinity of God is a scriptural concept used to express the collective unity and character of God: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. It is considered to be a divine mystery beyond human comprehension. Some believe that "Jesus Christ" is the only entity of God; that He is God Father, the Savior, and the Holy Spirit, all in one.

Is God a Trinity. The Trinity is one of mainstream Christianity’s most widely accepted and revered doctrines. The belief that God is three persons coexisting in one being or substance, as the doctrine is often defined, is held by millions of Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox believers alike.

Great, great, great book to explain the trinity to children. Very easy to read and understand. I had read a negative review from another buyer about sin/punishment (the book actually never even uses the word sin) but I thought this page was very well written and leads into God the Son coming to Cited by: 1.

[This is the first installment of a chapter-by-chapter review of God the Trinity that I am writing at [ ] The rest will be posted there.] The esteemed and justly revered Dr. James Leo Garrett, Jr. shared with me recently that he believes this new book by Dr. Malcolm Yarnell of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary may be the best book on the Trinity ever written by a Baptist theologian/5(15).

The book outlines the UCoG view of the Godhead in that they teach that God is a divine family with the Father and the Son. In this way, they are monotheistic while denying the Unitarian view. However, they disagree with Trinitarian theology over the deity of the Holy Spirit teaching instead that the Spirit is the power of God and not God the /5(31).

I don't know why it took me so long to pick up this book, published more than two decades ago, but it has proven to be revelatory. Catherine Mowry LaCugna provides us with a thoughtful and provocative exposition of the Trinitarian faith, showing that the immanent Trinity (God in God's self) cannot be known except through God's economy of by: Trinity is a long book that flies by.

Action, love, suspense and characters you'll care about long after you finish the book. The summer that Conor and Seamus spent at the Booley House is one of the most idyllic sections of any book I know; especially as it I loved the Leon Uris of Battle Cry, Exodus, and QBVII/5. Delighting in the Trinity is more stimulating, quotable and engaging than we usually expect a theology book to be.

Page after page, Reeves finds new ways of talking, draws surprising connections and reminds us that the God of the gospel is good news in three persons."/5(). The Trinity sets the limits on human speculation about the nature of God. There is so much we would like to know about God, but our finite minds cannot comprehend it.

We are not free to create God in our own image. The Trinity sets the limits for human speculation. God is more than the Trinity, but he is not less than that.

Introduction. In the Retractations (ii. 15) Augustine speaks of this work in the following terms:— I spent some years in writing fifteen books concerning the Trinity, which ishowever, I had not yet finished the thirteenth Book, and some who were exceedingly anxious to have the work were kept waiting longer than they could bear, it was stolen from me in a less correct state than it.

BOOKMARKS – highlights and notes on resources for personal reading April Haught, John F. What is God: How to Think About the Divine, (New York, t Press, ) As a resource for the Symposium on the Trinity, this book is does not treat the Trinity itself, but is a perfect foundation for understanding how we come to a notion of God in the first place.

The Christian doctrine of the Trinity (Latin: Trinitas, lit. 'triad', from Latin: trinus "threefold") holds that God is one God, but three coeternal consubstantial persons or hypostases —the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit—as "one God in three Divine persons".

The three persons are distinct, yet are one "substance, essence or nature" (). On The Trinity (De Trinitate) Augustine This book is not for the faint of heart, but it is hard to imagine a more influential (and misunderstood!) work on the Trinity.

The Trinity is one God existing in three Persons. Understand that this is not in any way suggesting three Gods. Keep in mind when studying this subject that the word “Trinity” is not found in Scripture.

This is a term that is used to attempt to describe the triune God—three coexistent, co-eternal Persons who are God. Of real importance is. Probably the most widely held Christian view of God is known as the “trinity.” This popular belief teaches that the Godhead consists of three distinct persons who have existed together from eternity past and are named the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit.

Each one possesses original, underived, and unborrowed life. But because we call even the Trinity itself God alone, although He is always with holy spirits and souls, but say that He only is God, because they are not also God with Him; so we call the Father the Father alone, not because He is separate from the Son, but because.

But be it which it may, the equality of the Trinity became apparent in this book also, and that God was not triple, but a Trinity; and that the Father and the Son are not, as it were, a double as opposed to the single Holy Spirit: for therein three are not anything more than one.

The concept of the Trinity is believed by most professing Christians, whether Catholic or Protestant. A Gallup Poll taken in found that 97% of the American public believed in God. Of that number, 83% believed that God was a Trinity. Yet for all this belief in the Trinity, it is a doctrine that is not clearly understood by most Christian.

Augustine pursues his defense of the equality of the Trinity; and in treating of the sending of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and of the various appearances of God, demonstrates that He who is sent is not therefore less than He who sends, because the one has sent, the other has been sent; but that the Trinity, being in all things equal, and alike in its own nature unchangeable and invisible.

For the Trinity is called one God, great, good, eternal, omnipotent; and the same God Himself may be called His own deity, His own magnitude, His own goodness, His own eternity, His own omnipotence: but the Trinity cannot in the same way be called the Father, except perhaps metaphorically, in respect to the creature, on account of the adoption.

The teaching that God is a Trinity is one of the chief false doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church. It is also one of the primary false teachings Protestants took with them when they left the Catholics during the Reformation.

The Biblical truth is that the Holy Spirit is the power through which. Is God a Trinity? - Ebook written by United Church of God.
