God’s trinitarian nature is eternal and unchanging, yet how Christians have understood and expressed the doctrine of the Trinity has been shaped over two thousand years of church history. Dr. Fred Sanders surveys the development of the theology of the triune God from the age of the apostolic fathers down to the modern era. He emphasizes that while the source and foundation of this doctrine is Scripture, understanding the perspectives of believers over time can be a resource for us as we reflect on God’s self-revelation. You will be shown in depth how the testimony of the church has affirmed God’s triunity over the millennia, and you will come to see more clearly your position in the long line of believers standing face to face with Scripture, learning there of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Fred Sanders is professor of theology in the Torrey Honors Institute at Biola University. He holds a BA in drawing and printmaking, an MDiv from Asbury Theological Seminary, and a PhD in systematic theology from the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California. His research covers a wide range of the major Christian doctrines, but his consistent focus is on the doctrine of the Trinity. He is the author of The Deep Things of God: How the Trinity Changes Everything, The Triune God, and several other books and articles.
