Book Summary of The Triune God by Fred Sanders


The aim of this book is right praise of the triune God as we rightly order our language and thinking about Him. 

Since the center of the doctrine of the Trinity is God’s self-revelation as triune, the Trinity is a revealed truth rather than an invention of the church. 

This gift of revelation, attested to by biblical witness, nonetheless requires deep reflection. This in turn prompts praise fuelled by the incredible privilege of knowing God as He is in Himself. 

While many Trinity studies work sequentially through the biblical data before moving to church fathers and other theologians, this book sticks to theological reflection on Scripture in order to retrieve patristic insights. After all, “the most patristic way to proceed toward a well-ordered doctrine of the Trinity is…to study Scripture” (p. 24).
