Most people assume they know what they mean when they use the word "God." They mean a powerful old guy in the sky ready to obliterate us if we do wrong but basically benevolent, if a little senile.

The Christian doctrine of the Trinity shows us God is vastly more interesting. God is actually fleshed among us in Jesus, poured out on us in the Holy Spirit's intoxication of the church. God is three divine persons in perfect harmony and beauty-and God invites us into that unimaginable intimacy. We don't know this God, but we should.

Trinity uses scripture, the Early Church tradition, and some modern theology to argue that God is a mystery whom we can't understand but who can shape our misunderstanding to allow for faithful living and holy love of God and neighbor.
"Jason
Byassee thinks like a theologian, writes like a journalist, and
communicates like a storyteller. We live in a time of trinitarian
dissonance, when the central doctrine of the Christian faith is
strangely neglected by most Christians. Byassee's wonderful exploration
of the Trinity offers a remedy for that by providing a meat-and-potatoes
introduction to the God who is at once Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. An
excellent spiritual guide for both mature Christians and those brand
new to the Christian faith." -Rev. Dr. Andrew C. Thompson, Assistant
Professor of Historical Theology &Wesleyan Studies, Memphis
Theological Seminary, Memphis, TN, and Wesley Scholar for the Arkansas
Conference of the United Methodist Church
"In
trying to communicate the trinitarian relationship, Byassee succeeds in
making the indescribable a little more coherent while reminding us of
the all-consuming love of God. Trinity is a little book of
rigorous thought and deep devotion. It is rare these days to find a work
of theology that stirs the intellect, the heart, and the spirit. And I
have to admit, in reading this book, I fell in love with the Holy Spirit
all over again." -Enuma Okoro, Nigerian-American writer, speaker, and
award-winning author of Reluctant Pilgrim, Silence, and Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals
