Announcing Meet the Puritans' First Book

Meet the Puritans is pleased to announce our first book, Knowing the Trinity: Practical Thoughts for Daily Life by Dr. Ryan M. Mcgraw. Dr. McGraw is not only a contributor to Meet the Puritans but serves as Professor of Systematic Theology at Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. He has written numerous books including The Foundation of Communion with God: The Trinitarian Piety of John Owen and Is the Trinity Practical?, also available at the store.

It was John Owen who said, “there is no grace whereby our souls go forth unto God, no act of divine worship yielded unto him, no duty or obedience performed, but they are distinctly directed unto Father, Son, and Spirit” (Of Communion with God). Everything we do in relationship to our God is related to him as Triune. The reality, though, is that we hardly think of the Trinity except merely as a doctrine we affirm against false theologies. This is where Dr. McGraw’s work is so helpful. He seeks to explain and apply God as Triune for all of our lives: how we think, how we speak, and how we act. The Trinity is not just the structural background of Christian theology it is the substance of living out Christian faith, hope, and love in relationship with the one true God and with each person in particular as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Dr. Carl Trueman says of this book, "In the tradition of John Owen. Dr. McGraw here offers a lively and accesible account of the doctrine and its practical and doxological implications for every Christian."

In conjunction with his new book, Dr. McGraw also did two interviews recently about the theme of this book, which will be helpful preparation or follow-up to reading his book:

Christ the Center with Camden Bucey and Jim Cassidy

Iron Sharpens Iron Radio with Chris Arnzen
