Stephen Holmes offers the reader a clear and thorough examination of the doctrine of the Trinity as it is developed from the New Testament to the present day. In this book Holmes speaks of the life of God, the God of Jesus Christ, the God who is for us.

Taking the late twentieth-century revival of the doctrine of the Trinity as a context, this book examines the development of that doctrine from the biblical text to the present day. It argues that the twentieth-century revival was in fact a fundamental departure from the doctrine of the Trinity developed by the ecumenical councils, and taught by all strands of the Christian church until the nineteenth century. The book traces and evaluates the exegetical and philosophical debates that led to the settling of the ecumenical doctrine of the Trinity in the fourth century, and then explores how this doctrine was developed, questioned and received through history.

The overall argument of the book is that a recently-influential narrative, that the doctrine of the Trinity was somehow lost to Christian theology, and has been recovered by pioneering theologians in the twentieth century, is probably mistaken. Holmes believes that twentieth-century theologians found an idea that bore some superficial resemblance to the doctrine of the Trinity, and was easy to assimilate into their cultural preferences; they then claimed that this was the historic doctrine.
