Despite the onslaught of empiricist rationalism both within the church and in the surrounding culture, the Trinity has maintained a uniform place among confessing Christians. Nevertheless, the supernatural aspects of the Christian faith has suffered from this emphasis and in Our Triune God Philip Ryken and Michael LeFebvre provide a succinct easy-to-understand overview of Christianity's most abstract doctrine--the Trinity--as it is presented in Scripture in its inner-relationship, economy, and divine nature.

Relating to God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit can have a deep impact on ones faith. Ryken and LeFebvre outline the saving, mysterious, practical, and glorious Trinity in this theologically rich resource.
PHILIP GRAHAM RYKEN (DPhil, University of Oxford) is president of Wheaton College. Previously he served as senior minister at the historic Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia and is the author of numerous books.
MICHAEL LEFEBVRE (PhD, University of Aberdeen) is pastor of Christ Church Reformed Presbyterian in Brownsburg, Indiana.
Philip Ryken and Michael LeFebvre have written a delightful book that will help us to better understand the great truth of the Trinity; one God in three Persons. Better yet, it should cause us to grow in our appreciation of the distinct works of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in our salvation and sanctification. I heartily commend this book.
-Jerry Bridges, author, The Pursuit of Holiness
The Westminster Shorter Catechism tells us that 'man's chief end is to glorify God and enjoy him forever.' In this book, the authors bring that affirmation to life by showing us that the Trinity is not just a doctrine to be believed but a relationship to be experienced and enjoyed. Pastors, teachers, and believers everywhere will be refreshed and challenged by this stirring call to a deeper participation in the love of the triune God.
