A good read for eating humble pie...because the Trinity is so over our heads!!!

I strongly suggest that everyone read Robert Letham's The Holy Trinity: In Scripture, History, Theology, and Worship (P&R Publishing Company: Phillipsburg, NJ, 2004). It is so thorough, but still readable by an average high-schooler or older. The Holy Trinity has to be believed for us to have eternal life, for the Doctrine of the Holy Trinity is the Doctrine of WHO God really is--NO Trinity, means you have the wrong "god" and only THE GOD can save--reject the Holy Trinity and you reject Jesus, so believe the Trinity and Live by Believing further in God the Son's incarnation, death, and resurrection for the forgiveness of our sins and the granting of eternal life. This book gives more than enough information to start wrapping your mind around this Doctrine more deeply. Of course, a thorough and constant perusal of Scripture would do even better, but this book draws out some stuff one might miss on a normal pass through. I love the Holy Trinity, so I urge all to read more about Him to His Glory first in Scripture and then in those who write about what Scripture says. With the One and Only Triune LORD GOD, it only gets better and better the more you know to the glory of God the Father and God the Son and God the Holy Spirit! Amen!
