Publisher's Summary

The Trinity is supposed to be the central doctrine grounding Christianity, yet we're often told that we shouldn't attempt to understand it because it's a mystery. But what if we breached that mystery? How might it transform our relationship with God?

Although the word trinity isn't found in the New Testament - it wasn't until the third century that it was coined - the idea of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit was present in Jesus' life and teachings. In this book, internationally recognized teacher Richard Rohr circles around this paradoxical idea - and circling around is an apt metaphor: Early Christians applied the Greek verb for dance to the mystery of the Trinity, saying whatever is going on in God is a flow - it's like a dance.

meditation book

I used this audio book as a form of prayer..... listening to it at least 15 minutes daily. Beautifully written with captured deep contemplations. The author is brilliant and uses his God given gifts in this wonderful story.

Phenomenal!

This book rescued the idea of Trinity after evangelical fundamentalism tainted it for me. I would've preferred Rohr's voice since I've grown quite attached to it, but the reader does a very good job.

The dichotomy of Rohr<br />

I find it ironic, borderline hypocrisy, that someone who writes so much on grace, mercy, and forgiveness has such an obvious disdain for his own culture and uses the word " Mega Churches with so much disdain, you can hear it in his writing. If you can get past that, their's a lot of quality theology in his work. Thankfully I've learned to read between the lines with Mr. Rohr and it works for me. Overall a quality read.

Life becomes a matter of showing up and saying yes

It's all about wiling to participate in the divine flow or keep it within our-self and suffocate.
If you don't share it you lose it but it is always there waiting for you to access.
This divine life within you. It's for everyone, no one has been left out.
God is the breath of our being. I am who I am. It's a constant bond with the Divine. An interplay with one another.
A mystery and yet when you deny the existence of the Divine within, you deny your true self.
Free will. Love can only thrive and expand inside of free will. We make the decision. To be or not to be.
This momentous moment can occasionally be caught but never taught.
Breathe in breathe out. YAH WEH.

Batter my heart, three person’d God (Holy Sonnet 14)
John Donne, 1572 - 1631
Batter my heart, three-personed God, for you
As yet but knock, breathe, shine, and seek to mend;
That I may rise, and stand, o’erthrow me, and bend
Your force to break, blow, burn, and make me new.
I, like an usurped town, to another due,
Labour to admit you, but Oh, to no end.
Reason, your viceroy in me, me should defend,
But is captived, and proves weak or untrue.
Yet dearly I love you, and would be loved fain,
But am betrothed unto your enemy:
Divorce me, untie or break that knot again,
Take me to you, imprison me, for I,
Except you enthrall me, never shall be free,
Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.

Give thought to the Trinityy

Rhor gives you something to ponder if you have not thought much about the Trinity or a new perspective if you have thought a lot about the Trinity
