God the Trinity Is The Trinity Biblical Is It Necessary To Affirm God As Three Persons In One Being Despite A Renewed Interest In The Trinity In Recent Years, Many Christians, Including Most Evangelicals, Either Relegate The Son Of God To Creaturely Status Or Repudiate The Personhood Of The Holy Spirit In Addition, Numerous Scholars Affirm That The Doctrine Of The Trinity Is Not Clearly Revealed In Scripture Is The Trinity Merely A Philosophical Construction, Or Is It Essential To Orthodox Christianity Drawing On Hermeneutics And Biblical And Historical Theology, Malcolm Yarnell Crafts A Careful And Clear Response To These Issues Through Exegesis Of Pivotal Texts From Both Testaments He Meticulously Examines The Foundational Hebrew Confession Known As The Shema, Matthew S Great Commission, The Divine Relations In The Gospel Of John, Paul S Corinthian Benediction, The Opening Hymn Of Ephesians, And The Throne Room Vision Of The Apocalypse Also Considered Are The Relationships Of Language To Revelation And History To Metaphysics, Along With Recent Appeals To Recover Patristic Exegesis And The Christian Imagination He Also Challenges The Reader To Discern The Implications Of The Trinity For Personal Salvation As Well As Corporate Worship

    Dr Yarnell summarizes his arguments in 10 Theses from eight biblical texts in the Epilogue It definitely, in his words, was not too traumatic though I still need to look up prosopological.

    Disclaimer BH Academic provided me with a free copy of this resource in exchange for a review.Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary professor of systematic theology Malcolm Yarnell offers readers an in depth overview concerning the doctrine of the Trinity in his resource, God the Trinity Eight chapters each comprise biblical portraits of the Trinity throughout Scripture Using a combination of Old Testament and New Testament passages including the Great Commission passage in Matthew 28 19, the Shema passage of Deuteronomy 6 4 7, as well as especially touching on various Trinitarian passages throughout the Gospel of John, Dr Yarnell beautifully offers an in depth exegesis of biblical texts throughout Scripture, illustrating to readers that the doctrine of the Trinity is indeed biblical, essential, and foundational for the Christian faith, salvation, and the true worship of God.After a brief prologue, Dr Yarnell introduces readers to the Trinity through the identity and name of God as Trinity in Matthew 28 19, moving on to include exegesis on worshipping God, God the Trinity as the only God, and a further examination and deeper understanding of the essence of the Trinity Dr Yarnell proceeds with examining the economics of the Trinity, specifically how the triune God is at work in creation, finishing up with the God who is coming in an exegesis in Revelation The resource concludes with a summarization in the epilogue, as well as an appendix of the three primary Trinitarian creeds Dr Yarnell s resource, God the Trinity, is a beautiful work which drew me closer to God and deepened my understanding of the Trinity and how important the role of the doctrine of the Trinity plays in the Christian faith As a student who will be beginning a PhD program in systematic theology likely at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary , Dr Yarnell s book deepened my hunger for studying the doctrine of the Trinity and outlined solid areas in which I can use Dr Yarnell s work as a stepping stone to immerse myself into additional studies concerning the Trinity The book is somewhat technical and academic in language and is best appreciated by those who have studied the biblical languages as I have during my M Div program and is ideal for a textbook in a class on Trinitarian theology after one as completed a general series of courses in systematic theology However, the book is approachable enough for those who have not endured formal biblical language study or systematic theology study Such readers can still read through this masterpiece, gain a deeper understanding of the doctrine of the Trinity, and use the principles in this resource to better articulate a solid, biblical discussion of the importance of the doctrine of the Trinity in the Christian faith As readers encounter this work, it will draw them near and dear to God and deepen their relationship with God immensely.I highly recommend this resource first and foremost to students of theology wishing to deepen their understanding of the doctrine of the Trinity, as well as pastors and biblical instructors wishing to articulate a solid biblical message on the importance of the doctrine of the Trinity in the Christian faith Lastly, I recommend this resource to any Christian wishing to immerse themselves in a solid, in depth exegesis of key biblical texts concerning the doctrine of the Trinity in order to walk away with a deeper love and worship of our God.Dr Yarnell s book has filled my soul with excitement ready to immerse myself deeper into a love and study of the truth and doctrines of the Word of God, and he has given me a solid hunger for further study concerning the Trinity through his excellent and beautiful study, God the Trinity.

    This book takes a unique approach in presenting God the Trinity There are several outstanding conservative volumes on the Trinity in print today, but Malcolm Yarnell gives us one that s organized unlike any other The conclusions found in this volume are conservative, baptistic, and supported by some of the finest theologians today.On the downside, I had trouble following the logic of the flow of the presentation of the material At times, it seemed random, conversational, and something of a flow of consciousness Finally, I figured out that he was just addressing some of the most important biblical texts on the Trinity All the arguments given showed scholarly depth and theological perception, it s just at times they didn t always seem the most persuasive tracks to prove the author s point In fairness to Mr Yarnell, it could have been that I just didn t personally connect with his design Probably it s best for you to check it out as it might be just what the doctor ordered for you.The key Scriptures discussed are Matthew 28 19, 2 Corinthians 13 14, Deuteronomy 6 4 7, John 1 18, John 16 14 15, John 17 21 22, Ephesians 1 9 10 and Revelation 5 6 Without doubt, these are crucial texts in grasping what the Bible has to say about the Trinity.The glowing recommendations that come with this book mean that despite my personal tastes about it, you will want to check it out if you re trying to collect a study library for the Trinity.I received this book free from the publisher I was not required to write a positive review The opinions I have expressed are my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission s 16 CFR, Part 255.

    This is one of those books that you read and find out how much you didn t know.Most Christians are aware of the doctrine of the Trinity, but this book takes you much further into just the articulation of that doctrine It encourages you to understand the implications of the Trinity it introduces scholarly debates about Trinitarian doctrine but most importantly, it draws you closer to who the Trinity is Each chapter develops a theme around a particular passage of Scripture the exegesis of Ephesians 1 Chapter 7 of the book is alone worth getting this book for.This book is rich, like fudge It s a slow, methodical read, and you ll need to take time at the end of each chapter to digest what you ve read and learned Highly recommended.

    God the Trinity Biblical Portraits by Malcolm B Yarnell III is one of the most important works on the Trinity in recent decades The book is divided into eight chapters Each chapter paints a portrait of God through the exegesis and examination of eight specific Trinitarian passages 1 Matthew 28 19, 2 2 Corinthians 13 14, 3 Deuteronomy 6 4 7a, 4 John 1 18, 5 John 16 14 15, 6 John 17 21 22, 7 Ephesians 1 9 10, and 8 Revelation 5 6 Further, each of these chapters narrowly converge on a single word from the passage that Yarnell uses to unearth and construct a clear biblical portrait of the trinity These eight chapters are sandwiched between a prologue which presents the necessity of the study and an epilogue which provides a succinct portrait of the triune God framed by ten Trinitarian theses in three categories 1 Trinitarian Reality, 2 Trinitarian Hermeneutics, and 3 Trinitarian Economy.There is much to be praised in this volume First, and probably foremost, Yarnell is a first rate scholar, and God the Trinity echoes serious and seasoned reflection on the subject matter Second, there is a lot of excellent information in this book that will expand the reader s understanding and knowledge of the biblical portrait of the trinity Still, the exegesis of the biblical passages therein is where the real benefit of this volume surfaces Yarnell is clear, articulate, and judicious in his presentation, and the reader will benefit with every turn of the page This is a volume that is both rich with depth and accessible and easy to digest Third, the organization around the portrait concept of the Trinity does well to display the biblical revelation concerning the triune God The only true critique, and this is of a desire than a critique is the lack of interaction within the Old Testament portrait of the Trinity Yarnell spends nearly all of his time in the New Testament, and most of that time in the Gospel of John It would have been good to see canonical representation, but the limitations of such are understandable God the Trinity Biblical Portraits by Malcolm B Yarnell III is a timely and welcomed defense and articulation of the biblical doctrine of the Trinity From the approach to the delivery, Yarnell has provided a volume distilled in seasoned scholarly reflection and research The depths of this volume are deep, and the insights are accessible Malcolm Yarnell has easily delivered one of the most important works on the Trinity in recent decades It comes highly recommended I received a review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I was not required to write a positive review The opinions I have expressed are my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission s 16 CFR, Part 255 Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.
