New McGraw Book on the Trinity Released

Greenville Seminary's Professor of Systematic Theology continues his exploration of Puritan thinking on the Trinity with a new book released by the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals' "Meet the Puritans" blog.

Knowing the Trinity: Practical Thoughts for Daily Life is Meet the Puritans's first book but not Dr. McGraw's first study on Puritans and Trinitarianism, others being The Foundation of Communion with God: The Trinitarian Piety of John Owen and Is the Trinity Practical?

"It was John Owen who said, 'there is no grace whereby our souls go forth unto God, no act of divine worship yielded unto him, no duty or obedience performed, but they are distinctly directed unto Father, Son, and Spirit' (Of Communion with God)," note the publishers. "Everything we do in relationship to our God is related to him as Triune. The reality, though, is that we hardly think of the Trinity except merely as a doctrine we affirm against false theologies. This is where Dr. McGraw’s work is so helpful. He seeks to explain and apply God as Triune for all of our lives: how we think, how we speak, and how we act. The Trinity is not just the structural background of Christian theology it is the substance of living out Christian faith, hope, and love in relationship with the one true God and with each person in particular as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit."

Dr. McGraw has recently discussed his book and related subjects with hosts of the Reformed Forum podcast and the Iron Sharpens Iron Radio podcast in February and December. Listen to these interviews by tapping the links above.
