The Holy Trinity and the Law of Three
Discovering the Radical Truth at the Heart of Christianity
By Cynthia Bourgeault
What People Are Saying
"A masterful, insightful new look at a core doctrine of traditional Christianity. Cynthia Bourgeault opens the door to a trans-Christian vision."
—John Shelby Spong, author of The Fourth Gospel
"I know the book will take some work, especially if you have no background in theology or mysticism, but it is well, well worth it. Cynthia, with her acute mind and marvelous choices of words, communicates something that can rearrange your own mind—and because of that your heart might just change too! I have attempted to write my own books on non-dual consciousness and contemplation, but this goes much further into the "how" of it all and even the 'why' of the 'law of three.' If you even get one third of it--and you surely will—it will allow you to see and think in a whole new way—and a way that is generative, life giving, and can only be called wisdom. Who would have thought that this "code breaker" was hidden within our Christian doctrine of the Trinity?! I think the implications of this 'radical truth' could change everything from our politics, to our social relationships, to our deepest encounters with the Divine."
—Richard Rohr author of The Naked Now: Learning to See as the Mystics See
"The Christian doctrine of the Trinity is upheld by some as a border checkpoint to restrict access, while it is disparaged by others as extra baggage to be left behind. Cynthia Bourgeault peers into it with the heart of a mystic and the mind of a philosopher and rediscovers it as a kaleidoscope of inspiration and a key to understanding...everything. One of the most fascinating, humbling, and awe-inspiring books I've read in years."
—Brian D. McLaren, author of Why Did Jesus, Moses, the Buddha, and Mohammed Cross the Road? and A New Kind of Christianity
