How To Relate To God Concretely
In teaching Theology Proper (the doctrine of God) in churches for over twenty years I constantly find that people struggle with connecting the dots of a God that is one in essence and three in person. The concepts of the Godhead seem distant and aloof and deemed abstract and incomprehensible.
Enter Michael Reeves into the equation: the abstract explained + the biblical doctrine of the Trinity + the concrete realities of a relational Being + everything beautiful in relationship to the triune members of the Godhead = an amazing appreciation for our communal relationship with an intimate God.
In reading this book you will laugh, see God more relationally, understand the unique roles of the Triune Persons of the Godhead in creation, our salvation, and in relationship to one another and to us corporately and individually.
Reeves has truly done a remarkable job of putting the “cookies on the bottom shelf.” Yet there is solid food here for the trained theologian as well as the new believer who is trying to put all the pieces of the theological puzzle together. He makes an excellent case for all foundational biblical truths relating to our understanding of the Triune nature and essence of the Godhead in an exciting and practical way. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
