It is highly recommended for anyone who wishes to deepen their approach to Trinitarian theology." Lucien J.

Format: Paperback
I think that I possess a reasonable degree of intelligence but I could get no understanding of what the author was saying in this book about the admittedly deep mystery of the Trinity.
I got a better idea about this impenetrable doctrine from the Kindle book:
'Sirs, What Must I Do To Be Saved':

God’s three-personal form of being (Trinity) is different from anything else in the universe.
What God intends has been determined in the counsels of the Trinity from eternity.
The Godhead (or essence of God) of Father, Son and Holy Spirit is indivisibly one. What one person of the Trinity does and is, all three do and are. Each has equality of being with the others. Each is fully God.
God the Son and God the Holy Spirit have subordinate roles to God the Father forever.
Each person of the Trinity gives love to the others (i.e. self-giving for the benefit of the others).
The Trinity is independent and with no need to create anything. There is joy in the Trinity.
In the economy of the Trinity, the Father speaks, the Son accomplishes and the Holy Spirit applies.
By means of eternal generation, God the Father is the cause of the personal existence of the Son within the Divine Being. God the Son is eternally begotten of the Father.
In primary functions in relating to the world: God the Father plans and directs. He is the sovereign Lord over all. He judges the world and chooses who is in the Church and who is not, through people’s willing choices.
God the Son is the active agent in carrying out God’s decrees. He mediates (for example the works of creation and redemption where redemption means paying a ransom that results in the saving of the redeemed from the consequences of Sin). He is subordinate to the Father in role forever.
