In the Mail: The Deep Things of God

With thanks to Angie Cheatham of Crossway Books, I just received a review copy of Fred Sanders’ new book: The Deep Things of God: How the Trinity Changes Everything (Crossway, August 2010).  Sanders is a specialist on the Trinity and in this book he “explains how the gospel is inherently Trinitarian.  Readers will see that recognizing the work of the Trinity in the gospel adds depth to faith and the Christian life.”   Here is more of a description:

The doctrine of the Trinity is widely taught and believed by evangelicals, but rarely is it fully understood or celebrated. Systematic theologian Fred Sanders, in The Deep Things of God, shows why we ought to embrace the doctrine of the Trinity wholeheartedly and without reserve, as a central concern of evangelical theology.

Sanders demonstrates, with passion and conviction, that the doctrine of the Trinity is grounded in the gospel itself. Written accessibly, The Deep Things of God examines the centrality of the Trinity in our salvation and the Trinity’s presence in the reading of the Bible and prayer. Readers will understand that a robust doctrine of the Trinity has massive implications for their lives. Indeed, recognizing the work of the Trinity in the gospel changes everything, restoring depth to prayer, worship, Bible study, missions, tradition, and our understanding of Christianity’s fundamental doctrines.

Looks to be a good, interesting and useful read!  Wished I could have linked it here though.  Ah well.
