The following clips are from a live discussion I had with Pastor Brian Zahnd at his church, Word of Life Church in St. Joseph, Missouri, on Sunday morning, March 22, 2009. I do mention my book Shape Shifters a few times. The book uses the doctrine of the Trinity as a foundation for understanding spiritual transformation. In the book, I also describe why I am a Trinitiarian Christian. [More on the book here]
Here are the clips:
Question: What is the Trinity?
Question: How was the the doctrine of the Trinity developed?
Question: Why is the word “Trinity” helpful? And how important was the doctrine of the Trinity to the early church?
Question: Why are modern Americans uninterested in theology and doctrine?
Question: What are some of the wrong ways people think about the Trinity?
Question: What about The Shack?
Question: What does the Trinity say to us about community?
Question: So how does the Trinity as a doctrine affect our daily lives?
