“And yet, Father and Son are distinct from each other. The Father sends; the Son comes.” (Page 16)

“Had the Christian faith merely been a human invention, Christians would never have come up with the doctrine of the Trinity. This doctrine is too thorny to understand and too difficult to explain for anyone to have deliberately fabricated it. There is no other religion that has anything remotely like this. No, this is not the fruit of our imagination but a doctrine of the way things are. God is triune. Knowing him in his triunity is central to Christian faith. Indeed, without this truth, that faith is not Christian at all.” (Page 5)

“We cannot have any allegiance to any other god or ultimate concern but must be subject solely to the God by whom we have been created and then redeemed. This call to loyalty is also a call to understand ourselves within the biblical framework of creation. The call to exclusive loyalty rests on the truth that there is only one God and that God himself is one (see also Deut. 32:31–43; Pss. 83:18; 86:10).” (Page 9)

“It is not enough that we believe in God, as do these spiritualities, however vaguely. We must believe in one God who, in his being, is not confused with creation and who is also tripersonal—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.” (Page 12)

“It was the incarnation that made inescapable what had, of course, been there from all eternity but was only hinted at in the earlier biblical record: God is one in being but also tripersonal.” (Page 13)
