Introduces Christianity's most central belief, the doctrine of the Trinity, by exploring how the Trinity shapes key aspects of Christian faith and spirituality.
In the early church the Trinitarian vision of God was foundational for Christian identity, unity, and spirituality. For many Christians today, however, the trinity is viewed as unreasonable and impractical. What exactly is the doctrine of the trinity, and why is it so central to Christian faith and life?
Centered in God is an accessible introduction to the Trinitarian vision of God and its implications for the Christian life. It not only presents the doctrine of the Trinity as formulated by the early church, but also leads readers to know and worship the Trinity, and live in light of the Christian understanding of God. Further, it proposes that recovering the central place of the Trinity could lead to theological and spiritual renewal in the church today.
More than an introduction to the Trinity, Centered in God is a primer on Christian faith and spirituality that will deepen your walk with God.
- A rich resource for Christians who want a deeper understanding of their faith and a closer walk with God
- A brief introduction to the doctrine of the trinity, and a theology of Christian spirituality, for students
- A valuable pastoral resource for preaching and teaching on the trinity
