The Holy Trinity
In Scripture, History, Theology, and Worship
When it comes to the doctrine of the Trinity, evangelicals have underachieved because of a lack of serious thought. In The Holy Trinity, Robert Letham helps to redress this shortcoming. He offers a well-researched volume about “the One who is utterly transcendent and incomprehensible.”
After examining the doctrine’s biblical foundations, the author traces its historical development through the twentieth century, and engages four critical issues: the Trinity and (1) the incarnation, (2) worship and prayer, (3) creation and missions, and (4) the three Persons.
The Holy Trinity won the 2005 Gold Medallion Book Award in the Theology and Doctrine category.
“There is no hotter topic in modern theology than the Trinity. Robert Letham has given us a comprehensive guide that will stand us all in good stead. I recommend it highly.”
-— Gerald Bray, Research professor at Beeson Divinity School, Birmingham, Alabama and director of research for the Latimer Trust
“In this outstanding work, Letham points us back to God in all the mystery and glory of his triune being. With his keen theological acumen, Letham has given us a tour de force of Reformed theology.”
-— Sinclair B. Ferguson, Professor of Systematic Theology at Redeemer Seminary, Dallas, Texas and part-time Professor of Systematic Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, PA
“Solid and judicious, comprehensive and thorough, abreast of past wisdom and present-day debate, and doxological in tone throughout, this is far and away the best big textbook on the Trinity that you can find, and it will surely remain so for many years to come.”
-— J. I. Packer, Professor, Regents College, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
