Book Summary of Connected by Sam Allberry


Many Christians are perplexed when it comes to the doctrine of the Trinity. The common questions and objections include:

  • “It doesn’t make sense.” (p. 14)
  • “It’s not meant to make sense.” (p. 14, emphasis in original)
  • “It’s too technical.” (p. 14)
  • “It’s embarrassing.” (p. 14)
  • “It’s irrelevant.” (p. 14)

Despite the questions and objections, the Trinity is an essential and necessary part of Christian theology and Christian living. Furthermore, despite the confusion, “It really does make sense… God wants us to understand what he is like” (p. 15).

The good news is that those who will come humbly to the Scriptures will not only find glorious truth about the Triune God, they also will find glorious resources for life. The Trinity is not meant to be an academic debate topic. Rather, the Trinity is meant to fuel “friendship, marriage, church, love, service, identity” (p. 15).

It’s true, the Bible doesn’t actually use the word Trinity. However, the Bible clearly teaches that God is one, and the Bible clearly refers distinctly to Father, Son, and Spirit as God. Those who dive into this doctrine often find themselves thinking, “God is far bigger and more beautiful than I could ever have realized” (p. 17).
