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

    This is great book that clarifies a some rather deep topics (God's nature & the Trinity in particular). I learned some new things about how inadequate the idea of God as a singularity is and how rich and meaningful the triune God is. Also gained a deeper understanding of why God created us. I am using this book as part of an ongoing study in our church for the purpose of moving believers into a deeper understanding of their faith, what they believe and what it means when they engage the non-Christian world. This has been a great resource. A book I will re-read many times in the future. I found his style of writing can sometimes be hard to follow, but that could be just my own personal reaction. Well worth buying and reading. You will profit richly form doing so. I have had opportunities to discuss God with people from other mono-theistic faiths and new have new insights that I wish I had earlier. Can hardly wait to share some of this with them.

    This is the best book on the Trinity I have read. It is easy to understand and focuses on GOD as a Father loving the son, the SON loving US, the SPIRIT loving the SON while comforting US & all Glory going back to the FATHER. A CIRCLE of LOVE following like a river. I feel much more ability to explain the TRINITY (before I was often miffed on truly understanding the Trinity).

    Excellent explanation about many concepts of the Trinity that I did not understand until reading the book. As the title says, this book did really help me to see why there is reason to delight in the Trinity!

    How can on describe the God we serve? Reeves does a great job of it, citing theologians of the past and plenty of Scripture.

    Starting with God as Father, a relational Being, the God of Love helps to bring Him in to perspective. I recommend this book.

    Like many of you I did three units on the Trinity in seminary--found it to be very impractical. The course gave me a headache as I tried to understand the triune Godhead and learn what words like subsistence meant. I did learn that you do not divide the essence nor confuse the persons of the Godhead.

    Dr. Reeves explains the triune Godhead in a wonderfully practical way. This summer I will take this book to Africa and teach it to local pastors. Can I compliment the book more?
