Why is God love? Because God is a Trinity.
Why can we be saved? Because God is a Trinity.
How are we able to live the Christian life? Through the Trinity.
In this lively book, we find an introduction to Christianity and the Christian life that is from start to finish rooted in our triune GodFather, Son and Spirit. Not only do we understand the person and work of Christ through the Trinity, but also prayer, the church and every aspect of our faith.
With wit and clarity, Reeves draws from church history down to the present referencing a wide range of notable teachers and preachers. Here is a rich and enjoyable portrayal of the basic beliefs of Christianity that opens up the profound and life-changing truths of our faith.
"[T]he book is an easy and pleasurable read with a down-to-earth articulation of the three-in-one God who loves and invites us into the deepest parts of his eternal love. Charming in its wit and winsome in its emotional appeal, it will motivate readers to love God more deeply and fully. I wish I had this book when I began my seminary studies. If only there were more theological treatments of the Trinity (or other Christian doctrines) written like this book, learning theology, and in a deeper sense, knowing and loving God, would be a delight."-- John Cheong, Trinity Journal, Spring 2014
"Even many Christians find the Trinity confusing, but Delighting in the Trinity is the clearest and best written explanation I've ever read."-- Marvin Olasky, World Magazine, June 29, 2013
"Michael Reeves's Delighting in the Trinity is an enjoyable introduction to the doctrine of the Trinity. . . . [It's] a great read. . . . This book would be useful for working with non-Christians seeking to understand Christianity. It would also serve the Christian who wants a better understanding of why the Trinity was not the invention of 'bored monks on rainy afternoons.'"-- New Horizons, April 2013
"Michael Reeves . . . has produced a powerful and concise treatment of the trinity in Delighting in the Trinity. One of the strengths of this volume is its practicality and accessiblity. One of the most exciting aspects of this book is Reeves' skill in helping readers understand what it means to enjoy God and understand the doctrine of the trinity to be a demonstration of 'the beauty, the overflowing kindness, the heart-grabbing loveliness of God.'"-- R. Albert Mohler Jr., Preaching, March/April 2013
". . . summary doesn't do justice to the tight and witty writing that Reeves provides . . . his style reminds me of C.S. Lewis."-- Marvin Olasky, World Magazine, December 1, 2012
"Have you ever been mystified by the Trinity? If so, then this book is for you. . . . This book is an ideal introduction for young people, for those who want to know more about God . . . and for pastors who are looking for ways to communicate the faith to non-specialists. It's basic approach is sound, and it will refresh the souls of all who read it. Could we ask for more?"-- Gerald Bray, Themelios, November 2012
