"... the simplicity of his style of communication will commend this book to all kinds of folk who currently would have problems in explaining their belief in the Trinity. He commences with proof from scripture, and adds to this, evidence from early Church thinkers, before applying Trinitarian religion in a practical way to ourselves... A sound book with the potential to be a blessing to many." (Christian Bookstore Journal)
"gives us a helpful look at the objections raised by Judaism, Islam, Mormonism and the Jehovah's Witnesses... extremely helpful. Donald Macleod writes with his customary clarity" (Evangelism Today)

Professor Macleod teaches the doctrine of the trinity so simply and so powerfully that the reader cannot but be stirred.
A small, little book. But it is a goldmine!
He notes how the persons of the Trinity *subsist* in the essence. He's drawing upon Boethius' work and I think that is problematic, but it is a good start, at least. He follows the standard line in apologetics by noting how all the persons are divine, yet there is one God; yet each person is not the other. Etc., etc. Again, this formulation, if taken too seriously, will lead to problems down the road (e.g., relations of opposition stuff); however, it really is a good way to get the conversation going.
This is probably the best take on the Trinity as it relates to "Sunday School" teaching.
