A Brief History of Trinitarian Thought

The Trinity is a great doctrine which evangelicals would do well to spend more energy on (including myself).  As an encouragement for you, the following link will take you to an hour-long discussion on the history of Trinitarian thought, hosted by Reformed Forum.  The dialogue includes Dr. Carl Trueman, Professor of Historical Theology and Church History at Westminster Seminary. This is an academic introduction so is a bit of heavy lifting at times. 
A description of the program and the audio can be found here.  Or you can jump directly to the audio file by clicking here.

Trueman on Owen Redux

Here’s a little more helpful info on Trueman’s introduction to Owen. Trueman presses one specific work of Owen for your initial consideration. It is Communion with the Triune God. This is a light editing by Kelly Kapic and Justin Taylor of Owen’s Of Communion with God.

In his video introduction, Trueman mentions the struggle many Christians have to understand the importance and impact of the doctrine of the Trinity on their everyday spiritual and devotional life. Owen’s work explores the right relationship of the Christian to the one true God considered in the individual persons of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

You can read Kevin Vanhoozer’s Foreword, Justin Taylor’s Note on This Edition, Preface, Chapter 1, and Glossary PDF.

Reality Check… this is not Owen lite. Reading him is hard work. Why bother? You will be better equipped to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.
