“A punchy book on the Trinity that is relentlessly practical!”

(Review written for 'Connected')

Connected is a fantastic book on the Trinity, that is short, yet relentlessly practical.

Alberry starts by giving an overview of the Trinity in the first half of the book. In particular he looks at how God is one, but also how God is three. Then in the second half of the book he moves onto specific areas of life: such as marriage, the church and prayer and then skillfully shows how the doctrine of the Trinity applies there.

Don't let that make you think though, that the first few chapters are boring and dull. They are anything but.

The first chapter on God's 'Oneness' makes the great points that if there is only one God - and there is - then he is the God of everyone in the world, at all times and in all places. So, we should get out there to tell people about this God. And secondly, if he is the only God - then he demands all of our lives, and not just the little bits we want to give him.

The latter chapters on marriage and church are particularly good.

We've been reading this together as a church. And my only critique of the book, is sometimes Alberry moves at a pace that can be slightly faster than some of his readers. For example in the second chapter on God's oneness, he makes the point that you can't worship the Son without the Father, but then moves from that to establish the doctrine for the other members of the Trinity. He also seems to repeat some of his application in this chapter from the first chapter. This however, is only a minor point.

If you think that the Trinity is a dry, dusty, doctrine, then this book is for you. It's also for those who want to be ruthlessly Trinitarian.

Highly recommended.
