The Holy Trinity and the Law of Three
Discovering the Radical Truth at the Heart of Christianity
By Cynthia Bourgeault
About the Book
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In this formula that Christians recite as though on autopilot lies the secrets for healing our world, rekindling our visionary imagination, and manifesting the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. It's an astonishing claim, but one that is supported by Cynthia Bourgeault's exploration of Trinitarian theology—and by her bold work in further articulating the deep truth it contains. She looks to the ancient concept in light of the ideas of G. I. Gurdjieff and Jacob Boehme to reveal the Trinity as the "hidden driveshaft" within Christianity: the compassionate expression of the Uncreated Reality in creation.
