Series: Guides to Theology (GT)

Appropriately the premier volume in the Guides to Theology series, The Trinity provides readers with a basic knowledge of the central and most distinctive doctrine of the Christian faith -- the triune nature of God.

Concise, nontechnical, and up-to-date, the book offers a detailed historical and theological description of the doctrine of the Trinity, tracing its development from the first days of Christianity through the medieval and Reformation eras and into the modern age. Special attention is given to early church controversies and to the church fathers who helped carve out the doctrine of the triune God as well as to the twentieth-century renaissance of the doctrine. The second part of the book contains a comprehensive annotated bibliography of classical and contemporary works on the doctrine of the Trinity.
"The writing is clear, succinct, and pleasurable to read. . . This is a very worthwhile introduction to the doctrine of the Trinity."
Kevin Vanhoozer
"The Trinity, with its detailed attention to the historical development of the doctrine, is a wonderful corrective to the theological illiteracy that continues to ail too many North American churches (and some seminaries!). Students will find the detailed annotated bibliography of key primary and secondary sources of special value."
Bibliotheca Sacra
"Hall and Olson have constructed an engaging historical survey of the doctrine of the Christian Godhead most helpful for the classroom and for curious readers. What it does, it does well, with reasonable balance and charm. The annotated bibliography alone makes the book worth buying."
