Overview

The doctrine of the Trinity is widely taught and believed by evangelicals, but rarely is it fully understood or celebrated. Systematic theologian Fred Sanders, in The Deep Things of God, shows why we ought to embrace the doctrine of the Trinity wholeheartedly and without reserve, as a central concern of evangelical theology. Sanders demonstrates, with passion and conviction, that the doctrine of the Trinity is grounded in the gospel itself. Written accessibly, The Deep Things of God examines the centrality of the Trinity in our salvation and the Trinity’s presence in the reading of the Bible and prayer. Readers will understand that a robust doctrine of the Trinity has massive implications for their lives. Indeed, recognizing the work of the Trinity in the gospel changes everything, restoring depth to prayer, worship, Bible study, missions, tradition, and our understanding of Christianity’s fundamental doctrines.

“The first step on the way to the heart of the Trinitarian mystery is to recognize that as Christians we find ourselves already deeply involved in the triune life and need only to reflect rightly on that present reality. Most evangelical Christians don’t need to be talked into the Trinitarian theory; they need to be shown that they are immersed in the Trinitarian reality. We need to see and feel that we are surrounded by the Trinity, compassed about on all sides by the presence and the work of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. From that starting point, truly productive teaching can begin.” (Page 34)

“Christ.’ Paul may be using the kind of shorthand we use when we say, ‘The sixteenth president of the United States was born in this cabin.’” (Page 85)

“the Trinity isn’t ultimately for anything, any more than God is for the purpose of anything” (Page 61)

“Christian theology has traced these persons back to an eternal Trinity of God in himself. Since this threefoldness belongs to what God actually is rather than being only something he freely does, it has been called the ontological Trinity, the essential Trinity, or the Trinity of being. Theologians have also called it the immanent Trinity, because immanent means ‘internal to’ itself.” (Page 89)

“You do not need to say all of those things at all times, but you need to have a felt sense of their force behind the things you do say.” (Page 16)

Fred Sanders (PhD, Graduate Theological Union) is a systematic theologian and professor at the Torrey Honors Institute at Biola University. He is the author of several books, including Wesley on the Christian Life, The Deep Things of God, and Jesus in Trinitarian Perspective.
