...a profound work of biblical theology, drawn from the whole Bible but especially from the teachings of Saint John and Saint Paul, and especially from their interpretation of the Old Testament. Dr. Scott Hahn, in the Foreword
In this fourth title in the series of contemporary Catholic classics, William K. McDonough offers a popular explanation of the meaning of the Trinity, the fundamental doctrine of the Catholic faith, and its relation to the body of Christian revelation. He presents a synthesis of the Catholic faith: the triune life of God; the Person of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; creation; the Incarnation; mariology; divine adoption; divine indwelling; prayer, sacraments and sacramentals; love; life with God here and hereafter.
McDonough relies on the theology of Saints John and Paul, the teachings of the Fathers of the church, and the spiritual writings of Sister Elizabeth of the Trinity, a contemporary of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux. He sees the mystery of the Trinity as a secret the Secret of Secrets beyond all our guessing that, once revealed to us, becomes the pattern for true Christian living. With examples drawn from everyday life and Scripture, McDonough strives to illuminate and make real for us this glorious truth.
