God cares that we know who he is, and he longs for us to understand him better. Through his Word he revealed his triune nature, though many avoid in-depth study of this doctrine because it is so deep and mysterious.

But God’s revelation of himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit affects how he relates to us, how he made us, and who he is eternally. The doctrine of the Trinity is essential to our understanding of him and of our faith. The focus of this study is to examine the ways in which the three Persons of the Trinity relate to one another, how they relate to us, and what difference this makes to our lives.

To understand just how God is both One and Three is to delve into some of Scripture’s most glorious truths and to experience the joy of beholding the wonder of our triune God. This is a practical study for you and your home, church, and ministry.

“Thanks to the clear thinking and biblically solid perspective of my friend, Bruce Ware, we are now blessed with this stimulating and edifying description of our God who is worthy of wonder and awe. Here is a theology that will launch your heart in worship—as all good theology should!”
Joseph M. Stowell
President, Moody Bible Institute

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is the remarkable accomplishment of one of the finest scholars in the land.… Bruce Ware has succeeded in doing what many scholars can never do. He has written a thorough theological treatise that any biblically literate layman can understand. Finally, we have a volume that reaches beyond the academic community and into the life of the local church.”
Paige Patterson
President, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Many automatically equate theology with complexity and even irrelevancy. Nothing could be further from the truth. Dr. Ware has the rare gift of making the profound accessible; he understands why theology matters and that it is the basis for true doxology.”
Nancy Leigh DeMoss
Author, Host of Revive Our Hearts radio program

“With all of the material available on the doctrine of the Trinity, I am thrilled to finally have a resource that will help the person in the pew understand how to properly articulate the doctrine and also grasp why it matters.”
Randy Stinson
Executive Director, Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood

“This book will help you behold God’s wondrous beauty and understand how it can be reflected in the way you interact with others. It is both awe-inspiring and immensely practical. Ware does a masterful job of helping the ordinary person understand and apply this important doctrine.”
Mary Kassian
Author and speaker, Alabaster Flask Ministries

Finished reading this book and found it a little disappointing. Written for the lay person, it may leave the impression of a subtle Tritheism or a distasteful understanding of functional subordination ... Read full review
