Synopsis

Bestselling author Joseph Girzone returns to the reflections on his personal spirituality typical of Never Alone and A Portrait of Jesus, his most popular books since the original Joshua.

With Trinity, Joseph Girzone guides readers to a deeper understanding of this foundational concept, explaining why it is not antiquated theological dogma, but a living expression of the very essence of God. He offers support and clarity to those who already believe in God, and invites those who profess not to believe on a journey to find “an image of a God who is believable, and perhaps, even lovable.”

For centuries, Christians have struggled to understand the nature of God as three persons in one. But with grace similar to that which allowed Saint Patrick to explain the Trinity by using a shamrock, Girzone takes a step back from the most arcane explanations to offer a simple, useful understanding. He begins by showing the ways God was perceived by the ancient Hebrews and reveals how Jesus forever changed that image of God. As he chronicles the growth from the time of Jesus and the early Church, writing about the challenges Christianity faced from both within and without, Girzone elucidates the mysterious ways the Trinity works in the world and especially, in the Church, as an extension of Jesus’ presence in history. Writing with passion and insight, he helps readers understand how the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit work within individuals as well, guiding them as they struggle along the pathways of life on Earth.

About Joseph F. Girzone

See more books from this Author
Joseph F. Girzone is the author of several best-selling religious children's books. Born on May 15, 1930, in Albany, N.Y., he received a theology degree from Catholic University of America in 1955 and was ordained a priest that same year. He served for many years as a teacher, pastor, and community leader, until ill health forced him to curtail his activities. He turned to writing to help support himself. Girzone has written several books, including his most famous, Joshua. Joshua, the story of the return of Jesus Christ to Earth in the 1980's, helps to spread the loving and caring teachings of Christ in contemporary society. Girzone faced many difficulties getting Joshua published. He took a job as a computer salesman to publish the book himself, and began selling the books through direct contact and word of mouth, finally gaining the notice of the large retail book chains.
