Simply Trinity (Paperback)
To truly know God, we must understand God as Trinity. What if the Trinity we've been taught is not the Trinity of the Bible? In this groundbreaking book, Matthew Barrett reveals a shocking discovery: we have manipulated the Trinity, recreating the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in our own image.
With clarity and creativity, Barrett mines the Scriptures as well as the creeds and confessions of the faith to help you rediscover the beauty, simplicity, and majesty of our Triune God. You will be surprised to learn that what you believe about the Trinity has untold consequences for salvation and the Christian life. To truly know God, you must meet the One who is simply Trinity.

"Simply Trinity could be a game changer. By writing a book for laypersons on the doctrine of the Trinity and the contributions of the church fathers Matthew Barrett may have gone a long way in helping to banish popular errors that continue to persist about the very nature of God. But this book is so much more. Complex doctrines and historical terms are brought out of the halls of academia and given back to the laity. As I read, there were moments when I shut my eyes and gave thanks to the God whose essence and perfections are beyond words. Please read this book." —Todd Pruitt, Covenant Presbyterian Church in Harrisonburg, VA; Mortification of Spin
"The Trinity is one of the Bible's more challenging doctrines and yet Matthew Barrett ably guides readers through the issues to present clear and cogent teaching. He opens the treasures of the past and draws upon patristic, medieval, Reformation, and contemporary theologians to explain the doctrine of the Trinity. But he also usefully shows where some have gone astray and charitably speaks the truth in love. People do well to read this book to plumb the depths of the Bible's teaching on the nature of our triune God." —J. V. Fesko, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, MI
