Book Review: The Threefold Art of Experiencing God
The Threefold Art of Experiencing God: The Liberating Power of Trinitarian Faith
By Christian A. Schwarz (reviewed by Peter DeHaan)
The Threefold Art of Experiencing God is a short book (32 pages) that is packed with profundity. Author Christian Schwarz asserts that although most Christians believe in the Trinity (that God exists in three persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) in practice there is a tendency to focus on only one part, be it the Father, the Son, or the Holy Spirit.The other two persons of the trinity are downplayed or even ignored. This over-emphasis is generally a result of the church we attend, how we were trained, or our particular theological bent. Some people may address two parts of the trinity, but again dismiss the third. Only occasionally do people equally consider all three. Providing balanced attention and maintaining a holistic perspective of all three persons of the trinity is the result that we should pursue. As such, this book is poised to make a significant improvement in how one views God and connects with him.
