Endorsements

This is a great little book. Where it makes a distinctive contribution is in the focus on the Trinity as key to undergirding and outlining the gospel.
-Carl Trueman,
Westminster Theological Seminary

The Trinity is often regarded as an esoteric and intimidating doctrine, over the heads of rank-and-file Christians. What are laypeople and students to make of the theologians' unfathomable utterances about how the Father, Son and Spirit constitute one God? The answer: Start by reading this book. Michael Reeves unpacks the significance of the Trinity for Christian life with a straight-shooting, conversational style honed by years of student ministry. But don't let the panache fool you. There is substance here that outweighs that of books much harder to understand. Read this book. Look up all the Bible passages it quotes. Let the Spirit use it to help you to see the Scriptures--and most of all, to see God the Trinity--in a new way. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
-Donald Fairbairn,
Robert E. Cooley Professor of Early Christianity, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and author of Life in the Trinity

Delighting in the Trinity overflows with the heart-winning news of the triune God who is love. Clear, accessible and compelling, Michael Reeves's new book provides stunning vistas of how the Father's eternal love for his Son has become unimaginably good news for us. If your life as a Christian has become at all routine or you simply wish to be freshly amazed at the transformative love of the Trinity for you, read Delighting in the Trinity. If you are like me, you will want to read it more than once. It's that spiritually satisfying.
-Dan Cruver,
national director of Together for Adoption and author of Reclaiming Adoption

If you have ever felt that the doctrine of the Trinity was a liability, a burden to be borne patiently, this is the book that will change your perspective. Michael Reeves's Delighting in the Trinity presents the triune God as the best thing about the Christian faith. Convinced that 'the triunity of God is the secret of his beauty,' Reeves writes from a full heart, with contagious enthusiasm for the Trinity. Delighting in the Trinity is more stimulating, quotable and engaging than we usually expect a theology book to be. Page after page, Reeves finds new ways of talking, draws surprising connections and reminds us that the God of the gospel is good news in three persons.
-Fred Sanders,
Biola University

It's not often one reads a book on trinitarian theology that is deeply insightful and wonderfully witty at the same time, but this is such a volume. Filled with careful thought and wise application, Reeves provides a most accessible book for those who are trying to understand what difference it makes that we are trinitarian.
-Kelly M. Kapic,
Covenant College
