Seeking to recover Trinitarian teaching in the evangelical church, Letham examines the doctrine's biblical foundations, traces its historical development, and offers suggestions on avoiding extremes of subordinationism and modalism. Skillfully engaging four critical issues, he illuminates the Trinity and the incarnation; worship and prayer; creation and missions; and personal relationships. 551 pages, softcover from P & R.
