How may the notion of Trinity become a practical, down to earth, living reality? The parable of the Good Samaritan must be one of the most familiar stories of Jesus. Yet we often miss what prompted it. Jesus asks the lawyer pointedly, ""How do you read?"" This workbook seeks to show how people may read their Bibles in a most constructive way that leads to their living with and so loving truly the triune God, the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, who shares life-giving Holy Spirit with his people. In nine study sessions, for either individuals or small groups, with Questions for Reflection after each, readers are taken through the Story of Salvation. From Abraham to the New Testament church's catechism, they are presented with a particular strategy on how to approach the Christian Scriptures that the central actor in the drama, the triune God, more readily comes into view. This workbook therefore addresses what seems an intractable problem. No longer a formal creed from the fourth century, and certainly not just a medieval scholastic ""game,"" the goal is for the notion of Trinity to become a practical, down to earth, living reality, for the church and for individual disciples of Jesus. ""Bryden Black is both good at mathematics and theology and in this important companion volume to The Lion, the Dove, and the Lamb, he provides the workings upon which one's Trinitarian theology is derived. In his inimitable style, Black provides us with a much-needed resource that will be greatly used and appreciated by all who take up and read."" -- Myk Habets, Carey Baptist College, New Zealand ""I do not know of a more skillful narrator of Holy Scripture than Bryden Black. As Bryden leads us in our reading of Scripture, the way he talks is both profound and practical. It requires work and produces wonder. It is rigorous and thoroughly relational. This workbook is an invaluable resource for those who seek to live with the triune God of the gospel."" --Rod Thompson, Minister, Springwood Presbyterian Church, Springwood NSW, Australia ""This rich resource nurtures the reading of Scripture in an explicitly Trinitarian way. This workbook will enable groups to read Scripture in a deeper and more theological manner. But it's not just about reading Scripture--the rich insights and 'Questions for Reflection' given here will help the Church to live as the people of the triune God."" --Paul Trebilco, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand ""Lucid, engaging, practically-focused on every page, Dr. Black's guide to Scripture's ever-wondrous news offers an immensely helpful and accessible resource for today's church. I am delighted to commend it warmly."" --Ivor J. Davidson, University of Aberdeen A. Bryden Black is an Anglican priest in the Diocese of Christchurch, New Zealand. His time is divided between commercial farming in North Canterbury and ministering in a large parish in the city, with some formal theological teaching as well. His interests mean his life straddles the church, the academy, and the world, the fruit of which constantly seeks due integration in maturing Christian discipleship, for himself and others.
