“The Deep Things of God” by Fred Sanders


The Deep Things of God addresses the problem of “Trinitarian forgetfulness” in the current climate of simplfication obsessed and shallow-minded Western world Christians. OUCH!  Well, I certainly hadn’t forgotten the trinity, but after reading this, I will certainly celebrate it more explicitly in my teaching ministry.  Sanders proves that the Trinitarian belief system is at our historical roots as a gospel movement.  He shows how a trinitarian view of God supports and connects central practices of our faith, especially prayer and Bible reading.  The best tool in this book is the diagrams so that I can try to explain a difficult concept that the Bible demands we affirm.  If you cannot explain the Trinity over a meal with a loved one, then read this book.
