In the last eight books Augustine seeks to understand the mystery of the divine Trinity by observing an analogous trinity in the image of Go. However his introduction reveals disagreement with Augustine at certain significant points, for instance, he declares that God is only analogically Father, not actually, against both Augustine and Scripture.

One of the most brilliant minds of the Christian tradition (and beyond!), St. Augustine plunges into the most captivating, yet also the most incomprehensible pillar of the Christian faith–the Triunity of God. Arguably Augustine’s most taxing and enigmatical work, The Trinity is a rite of passage for all students and learners of Trinitarian theology (and beyond!). Inflexible in his meticulous bend, Augustine exacts demanding intellectual and spiritual prowess to delve deep into the most wondrous mystery: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit. How can this be? Why is this be? Searching for an appropriate explanation of the Trinity, Augustine, in the end, falls into humble surrender: “What is the reason then that you cannot fix your gaze on it to see it, but weakness obviously; and what brought this weakness on you but wickedness obviously? Who then is to heal all your infirmities but he who is gracious to all your iniquities?” (15.27.50). In daring hope, we will see God face to face (1 Cor 13:12), but until then we wait in faith in the Triune God to purify us in grace and love. Amen.

No words suffice. Prepare to have to set the book down numerous times while you stare off into space and contemplate the Trinity and the nature of reality. People might be intimidated by Augustine, but don't be. This work is approachable and any serious reading will produce an abundance of fruit as you come to contemplate the unfathomable depths of the Trinity. Everyone is made for life in the Trinity, and Augustine's epic work stokes the fire of desire in ones heart to attain to the love that lasts in the Trinity.

One of the best books out on the Trinity. St. Augustin's work is phenomenal to say the least. St. Thomas Aquinas builds on him nicely. If you want an authentic look at the Trinity and its depth, then this is the book for you.

This is a challenging read! I'm not even going to pretend to understand it but Augustine offers us some really helpful reflections on the Trinity in this work and for that, I am thankful.

I can not give this book 5 stars only because I find it difficult to read. It is fascinating, however, and I am plowing through it little by little. But I can read it only in small bits at a time. For two reasons; 1. I am studying it as well as reading it. 2. I am a naturally slow reader. I am very impressed by the work of the translator. He has done a wonderful job making this work accessible. When he perceives a problem with a phrase he points it out in a footnote. When an explanation of a particular section is necessary he provides it. Furthermore, I have become more and more interested in the Christian Doctrine of the Trinity. This work by St. Augustine is providing me with an excellent exposition of the Trinity. Other works on the Trinity were originally written in Greek. This work by Augustine was one of the first written in Latin. Thus there is more scholarship necessary in order to compare the two schools of thought on the subject. All in all I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in going into depth in the study of the Trinity.

Augustine isn’t always easy, but is always worth the effort

The author is the most excellent thinker of all time. This work is, simply put it, an immense systematic explanation of the the Trinity, and yet, elaborated for ordinary people.
this is a must read for all Christians by one of the greatest theologians of all time. the translator,edmund hill, includes footnotes with his interpretations of some of the more complex ideas. the only problem with these early Christian writers is they make you think about why being Christian makes sense so the book is not meant for lazy readers. st.augustine spent 44 years of his adult life giving logical explanations for Christine doctrine based on Christian scripture so I thought it would be worth a few weeks hearing what he had to say about the core belief of Christianity. this is not as easy to grasp as some of his other writing but well worth the effort.
