The book is brief and the chapters are short and spiritually oriented. It is one of best brief treatments of the Trinity that I've encountered. Thus, I recommend it highly as a good starting place for an exploration of the ways in which we name God.
Boff starts with the working assumption that "the prevailing mindset in the church is more that of an 'a-trinitarian' or 'pre-trinitarian' monotheism than a true trinitarian consciousness of God." (p. xii) Since this is vintage Boff, he feels compelled to state: "Returning to a radically trinitarian understanding of God would help the church overcome the clericalism and authoritarianism that are still very much in evidence in ecclesiastical behavior."
(This book essentially is a popularized version of Boff's Trinity and Society:, which brought a liberationist perspective to academic Trinitarian theology.)
