Understanding the Trinity focuses on one major area of Bible doctrine, namely the doctrine of the triune God. What could be more important than the doctrine of God Himself and that He has revealed himself to us in Scripture as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?

It is this view of God as Trinity that distinguishes Christianity not only from all other religions, but also from the other major monotheistic religions, Judaism, and Islam. Christians believe that there is only one God. But we also believe that there are three distinct and eternal persons within the Godhead who are all equally God. While we do not pretend to understand the Trinity fully, we do desire to understand more of God’s revelation of Himself.

The essays contained in this book were originally presented orally at a symposium held on the campus of Emmaus Bible College. They were subsequently published in The Emmaus Journal, the theological publication of Emmaus Bible College, Dubuque, Iowa. Various other essays were compiled into another book, Understanding the Church.


As a result of listening to Billy Graham, Jack Fish trusted Christ in his junior year of high school. He graduated from Brown University with a B.A. in Linguistics and went on to receive Th.M and Th.D degrees from Dallas Theological Seminary. For the past 39 years Jack has taught at Emmaus Bible College. He currently serves as editor of The Emmaus Journal.
