Disappointing -- Where is the Explanation of the Trinity?
on June 27, 2013
I had high hopes for this book but was very disappointed. I expected a thorough and enlightening explanation of the Trinity, one of the most difficult concepts to grasp. Yet this book seems to be one long prologue. I was 35% into the book yet no theological discussion of the nature of the Trinity. I found a much better explanation online from William Lane Craig. (And very intellectually challenging!).
Maybe I'm missing it but if you want to know more about the Christian concept of the Trinity, go elsewhere. If you want a rambling discourse that touches on a bit of history, a 30,000-foot view of the Trinity, this is your book. (Also, the author seems to always want to counter or challenge the evangelical's view of his faith and the Trinity -- as if evangelicals don't quite get it and the Trinity is in their religion yet they miss it.
