The doctrine of the Trinity is foundational to Christian theology, though sometimes daunting error is probable when biblical texts are read selectively. A careful study of the whole counsel of God, however, will bring needed clarity. In a work geared especially toward leaders in the church, scholars of the Trinity including Richard Bauckham, Robert Letham, Michael Reeves, and Scott Swain overview Old Testament teaching, provide Trinitarian readings of the entire New Testament corpus, and explore the practical relevance of the doctrine to prayer, worship, and other aspects of Christian life and ministry.

Today there are many books on the market dealing with the doctrine of the Trinity. This is my favorite. It is a clear presentation, discussion, and application of the historic doctrine by people who believe it and have studied it deeply. The essays have kept close to their source, the teaching of the Holy Scriptures. . . . I do not agree with every detail of every essay; they do enter into some controversial areas. But the reader will learn even from that controversy to engage the Scriptures with more thought and devotion.

What a pleasure to commend this book—an exegetical treasure, unpacking the doctrine of the Trinity on the Bible’s own terms; a refreshing presentation of the doctrine’s vital importance for the Christian and the church; and a rich resource for the preacher.
