The Trinity and the Christian Life: Sound Doctrine for Faithful Discipleship by Robert Solomon
For many Christians, the Trinity is just a puzzling historical doctrine, and nothing more than that. Is the doctrine still relevant for our present day? Why did the early church struggle so hard to ensure that the doctrine was carefully stated in its creeds? What does the Bible say about the Trinity? Why is the Trinity the central doctrine of the church, on which depends much of proper Christian thought and experience, including our salvation, worship, prayer, relationships, unity and mission? We will examine these questions and come away more aware of the necessity for all Christians to believe in the Trinity, and, more importantly, to live the Trinitarian life.
The Prayer of Jesus by Robert Solomon
The Prayer that Jesus taught His disciples has had a significant role in the worship, thought and life of the historical church. There is, however, the danger that the Lord’s Prayer may become a lost prayer in the contemporary church. It is important that Christians revisit this Prayer and rediscover its riches and power to transform them. This book draws from the rich history of this Prayer and explores its depths by examining each petition and clause in the Prayer in the illuminating light of biblical teaching and the perspective of the mind of Christ. The purpose is not only to foster deeper understanding but also to encourage a deeper allegiance to Jesus and a close union with Him in prayer, service and witness.
