Book Review: Our Triune God by Philip Ryken and Michael LeFebvre

24 May

This book concisely and eloquently presents some of the depth’s of the biblical portrayal of the Triune nature of God in four particular areas: 1) The Distinct roles of the Father, Son, and Spirit in our salvation from Ephesians 1:3-14 – this section made me want to thank and praise the Trinity; 2) The Mysteries of the Trinity with glimpses into how God is one in essence and yet three in Person in the Old and New Testaments – this section fed my mind; 3) The Relational nature of the Trinity with some helpful exposition from John 13-17 – this section nurtured my soul; 4) Highlights from the Gospel of Luke gives glimpses into the joy and power of the Triune working of God in our lives – this section increased my joy in the Lord.

The author’s do a very good job of highlighting the distinct roles of each Person in the Godhead; going into enough depth to make one think; and use helpful illustrations to touch and reach the soul. I think this book is an excellent resource to give away to new believers who have never really thought through the process of their salvation; and how essential each Person in the Trinity works in making this possible. I also think that the more Trinitarian we become, the more we actually grow in our understanding of, and intimacy with God.

As a pastor and life coach I’m particularly grateful to have this book to be able to share and give away as a very good resource to those who want to know God more intimately. It is a book that is easy to read, short, and yet covers a lot of theological ground in about 100 pages.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher – Crossway Books – book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
