“Recent years have seen a number of books designed for a lay readership that sweep the doctrine of the Trinity off the dusty shelves of irrelevance, helping us see that God’s triunity radically shapes every part of Christian faith and life. Here is one of the most lively, readable and stimulating to appear.”
Jeremy Begbie, Thomas A. Langford Research Professor at Duke Divinity School, Duke University

"Delighting in the Trinity overflows with the heart-winning news
of the triune God who is love. Clear, accessible and compelling, Michael
Reeves' 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 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, author of Reclaiming Adoption: Missional Living through the Rediscovery of Abba Father.
"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.
