Overview

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In this formula that Christians recite as though on autopilot lie the secrets for healing our world, rekindling our visionary imagination, and manifesting the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. It’s an astonishing claim, but one that is supported by Cynthia Bourgeault’s exploration of Trinitarian theology—and by her bold work in further articulating the deep truth it contains. She looks to the ancient concept in light of the ideas of G. I. Gurdjieff and Jacob Boehme to reveal the Trinity as the “hidden driveshaft” within Christianity: the compassionate expression of the Uncreated Reality in creation.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A masterful, insightful new look at a core doctrine of traditional Christianity.  Cynthia Bourgeault opens the door to a trans-Christian vision."—John Shelby Spong, author of The Fourth Gospel: Tales of a Jewish Mystic

“The Christian Doctrine of the Trinity is upheld by some as a border checkpoint to restrict access, while it is disparaged by others as extra baggage to be left behind. Cynthia Bourgeault peers into it with the heart of a mystic and the mind of a philosopher and rediscovers it as a kaleidoscope of inspiration and a key to understanding ... everything. One of the most fascinating, humbling, and awe-inspiring books I've read in years.”—Brian D. McLaren, author of A Generous Orthodoxy
