A Few Good Books on the Trinity

This Sunday, like so many around the world, I will be preaching on the Christian doctrine of the Trinity–the Tri-Unity of God. After, I’ll post that sermon here. For now, I thought I would list a few excellent theological works on The Trinity.

 

For beginners in theology:

Alister McGrath, Understanding the Trinity (Zondervan, 1990).

Roger E. Olsen and Christopher A. Hall, The Trinity. (Guides to Theology Series). (Eerdmans, 2002).

 

Modern works on the Trinity:

Leonardo Boff, Trinity and Society. Trans. from Portuguese by Paul Burns. (Reprint Wipf & Stock, 2005).

Elizabeth A. Johnson, She Who Is: The Mystery of God in Feminist Discourse10th Anniversary Edition (Crossroads Publishing, 2002).

Catherine Mowry LaCugna, God For Us: The Trinity and the Christian Life(HarperOne, 1993).

Jürgen Moltmann, The Trinity and the Kingdom (Fortress, 1993).

Karl Rahner, The Trinity (Milestones in Catholic Theology).

There are many others, but these should keep you busy for awhile.
