Editorial Reviews

Review

This is heart-warming, awe-inspiring teaching which will fill the mind and feed the soul. Deep truths are expounded with a light touch and down to earth applications. Here is a book that will not only help readers to understand more deeply the mystery of God the Holy Trinity but also moves us to worship and honour him in daily life.
-- Vaughan Roberts, Rector of St Ebbe's, Oxford; author, God's Big Picture


Sam Allberry rightly points out how neglected the doctrine of the Trinity is, showing its importance clearly and warmly. I hope many will read this and be affected.
- Michael Reeves, Head of Theology, UCCF; author, Delighting in the Trinity

As a pastor I am really happy when someone writes a clear and accessible book about the Trinity. I'm even happier when that person is Sam Allberry. This book is theologically sound, engaging, and full of practical application. In short, it's the kind of book that I want people in my church to read and discuss and take to heart.
-- Mike McKinley, Senior Pastor, Guilford Baptist Church, Sterling, VA, and author of Am I Really A Christian?


Both deep and accessible, theologically rich yet pastorally applied... If this book does not move your heart to worship, then you are one cold fish!
-- Adrian Reynolds, Director of Ministry, The Proclamation Trust, London. 


An excellent introduction to the practical outworkings of the Trinity.
-- Paul Levy, Reformation21 blog

Format: Paperback
This is the second book on the Trinity that I have read in 2012 (the other being The Good God by Mike Reeves). It is vital to know God, but more specifically I am starting to realise (yes, after being a Christian for about 22 years) that knowing God as Trinity throws light on many other things. So why didn't I realise this at the age of 18? Well, I agree with Sam Allberry when he says

"The doctrine of the Trinity was carefully filed in the drawer of 'Things That All Good Christians Believe' and then never really seen again. I had no immediate need to look further into the Trinity, and a number of suspicious were holding me back:
It doesn't make sense
It's not meant to make sense
It's too technical
It's embarrassing
It's irrelevant"(pp. 13-14)

Helpfully and appropriately Allberry says "Such thinking comes to an abrupt and happy halt the moment we begin to look more closely at what the Bible shows us about the Trinity" (p. 15). He goes on to say that:

"Understanding the Trinity helps us make sense of so much of what we hold dear: friendship, marriage, church, love, service, identity. Things that are precious to us, but which we are not always able to properly account for, find new significance when examined in the light of the Trinity. Things we cherish about God - his love and integrity, the coherence of his Word, the nearness of his presence, and, above all, his matchless love poured out for us through the death of Christ - all these can only make real sense when we discover that God is, in fact, Trinity" (pp. 15-16).

Allberry then, as he claimed, turns to the Bible, not so much to prove the doctrine of the Trinity in forms of dogmatics, but unfold the doctrine by looking at key passages.

Necessarily a bit deeper than Allberry's first book, Lifted, but doesn't sacrifice a bit of its readability to examine the Christian doctrine of the Trinity. Allberry has the trick of holding up a complicated, "otherworldly" subject and turning it all around for us to see, then tracing its implications to all sorts of everyday places.

Format: Paperback
Sam Allberry is the master of writing that is accessible & assumes nothing, but deals with deep truths.

Too often writers delight in making things more complex than they need to be, but others write in a manner which dumbs everything down and is patronizing.

Connected explains, instructs, and inspires. I commend it as a fantastic resource for those wanting to understand why the doctrine of the Trinity is so important to us today.
