Overview

It comes as a surprise to many Christians that for many decades the dominant concern of the ancient church was the Trinity. Recent years have seen a revival of interest in this idea, but almost nobody has seen that in his approach to humanity, God has provided a pattern for his people to emulate. We should act in a way patterned on what he did in sending his Son and Spirit, "God's two hands". Then the Trinity also provides an ideal pattern for humanity to aim at.

The book discusses the theoretical background for this approach, and gives several examples of how this works out in practice, such as the marriage relationship and the problems of poverty and the environment.

An appendix outlines the reasons for belief in the Trinity, and sketches the development of the doctrine in Christian history.
