The revelation of the Trinity establishes that the relationship of the one true God with us springs from the relationship within himself, without us. The Trinity is not a problem to be solved, but a beauty to be discovered. Dr Imad N. Shehadeh uses careful exegetical and theological analysis to explore the presentation of the triune God in Scripture and expertly navigate the reader through the errors and pitfalls regarding the Trinity.
This book explains the essential role that the perfect truth of a three-in-one God plays in being able to know God and be sure of his character. Dr Shehadeh doesn’t fear to tread on controversial ground but instead addresses key issues in theology, the study of God, such as the logic of the Trinity, and whether the God of the Bible is the same as the god of other religions. This first of two volumes, is a valuable contribution to the theological academy but also is an accessible guide for anyone to encounter the perfect, holy, triune, God.
Imad Shehadeh has provided a thorough biblical, theological, and philosophical presentation of the nature and attributes of God. This book reflects careful scholarship as well as a well-reasoned presentation. He is both fair and faithful in setting forth the God of the Bible.

Dr Imad Shehadeh is a godly theologian with a pastor-teacher-evangelist’s heart. As a beloved friend for nearly twenty-five years, it has been a joy to see the powerfully clear truths in this book, and the soon-to-follow companion work, forged in the heart and mind of Imad. This book has come forth through painstaking exegesis of the text of God’s Word, copious original historical research, and with constant, prayerful waiting upon God. Through years of the fiery trials of serving on the frontlines, Imad has come forth with humble clarity, refined confidence, and a focused championship of the non-negotiable essentials of biblical Christianity. The Trinity is the foundation of true biblical Christianity. The Trinity is the only way to understand the efficacy of the just death of Jesus Christ. The Trinity is the only way to answer the raging question of who is the One True and Living God. No theologian of our generation has done more to advance such essential and true theology than this work by Dr Imad Shehadeh.

Imad Shehadeh has written an excellent primer on perhaps the most misunderstood teaching of the Christian faith – the biblical doctrine of the Trinity. What does it mean to say that the one God is triune? How does this unique understanding of God’s very nature differ from other monotheistic views? Why is it vital to grasp the difference? For Christians, Dr Shehadeh’s readable and thoroughly biblical treatment will deepen and inspire them—not to mention, alert them to and guard them from all too common errors. For non-Christians, this book will usher them to the wondrous beauty and power of the triune vision of God that is the beating heart of the Christian faith.
