In my many years of teach­ing in a Chris­t­ian col­lege and in evan­gel­i­cal church­es” Chris Hall observes, I would esti­mate that 97 per­cent of my stu­dents were pre­dictably hereti­cal when they tried to explain the Trinity.”

If A. W. Toz­er is right that the pic­ture we hold of God in our minds is the most impor­tant thing about us, then nur­tur­ing our under­stand­ing of the Trin­i­ty is essential.

Chris Hall is an author, pro­fes­sor, and Renovaré’s pres­i­dent. James Bryan Smith is an author, pro­fes­sor, and long-stand­ing Ren­o­varé min­istry team mem­ber. Both men have pon­dered deeply and writ­ten wide­ly about the good­ness, won­der, and beau­ty of the Trin­i­ty. In this webi­nar, host­ed by Car­olyn Arends and guid­ed by par­tic­i­pant ques­tions, Chris and James explored top­ics like:

  • Why are most of our analo­gies for the Trin­i­ty inad­e­quate at best and hereti­cal at worst?
  • How can the work of the Ear­ly Church on the doc­trine of the Trin­i­ty help us?
  • Why are our God-nar­ra­tives crit­i­cal­ly impor­tant, and how do they shape us?
  • Why is it dan­ger­ous to work on the­ol­o­gy in the absence of wor­ship or discipleship?
  • What is par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Trin­i­ty,” and how do expe­ri­ence it?
