Reading Theology Together: The Holy Trinity

January 8, 2013 — Leave a comment


If you remember this time last year, we started reading John Frame’s Doctrine of The Knowledge of God in my trial run of a Marturo Reading Group.

Now that the New Year is upon us, it’s time to start a new book and this time we’re reading Robert Letham’s The Holy Trinity: In Scripture, History, Theology, and Worship. I picked this book for several reasons:

  • I resolved this year to read more from my own surplus of books rather than acquiring new ones
  • I am growing more and more convinced that studying the doctrine of the Trinity is a must for every Christian
  • This book is readable for the average person, but because of its length, it might seem daunting for a solo read
  • Studying the Trinity in community is way better than studying alone

I’m sure reasons could be multiplied, but these are more than sufficient.

As far as the schedule goes, here’s what I’m thinking:

  • January 9th – Introduction/Preface/Chapter 1
  • January 16th – Chapter 2
  • January 23rd – Chapter 3 and Excursus
  • January 30th – Chapter 4
  • February 6th – Chapter 5
  • February 13th – Chapter 6
  • February 20th – Chapter 7
  • February 27th – Chapter 8
  • March 6th – Chapter 9
  • March 13th – Chapter 10
  • March 20th – Chapter 11
  • March 27th – Chapter 12
  • April 3 – Chapter 13
  • April 10 – Chapter 14
  • April 17 – Chapter 15
  • April 24th – Chapter 16
  • May 1 – Chapter 17
  • May 8th – Chapter 18
  • May 15th – Chapter 19
  • May 22nd – Chapter 20

Hopefully the chapter a week pace won’t burn anyone out. I think what we all learned from last year is that the more reading there is (and the later it gets in the semester), the less likely people are to stick with it.

I know who is going to be reading with us in person on Wednesday nights (I think), but if you’re going to be reading along long distance, let me know!
