Endorsements & Reviews-

"The doctrine of the Trinity--that God is one and yet three and three without ceasing to be one--is for many people the most perplexing of all beliefs. How does one make sense of it? Dave Andrews has meditated long and hard on what this most mysterious and beautiful of religious beliefs means, not just at a theoretical or speculative level, but also at a practical, down-to-earth level. It's an indispensable paradigm for living together in a cruel, violent and lonely world."
-Chris Marshall, St. John's Senior Lecturer in Christian Theology, Religious Studies Department, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

"Dave Andrews is one of Australia's most innovative community workers. His vision for social change, however, comes out of a well-articulated theological vision. Dave clearly demonstrates that Jesus' vision of the in-breaking reign of God rooted in Trinitarian theology can be the inspirational centre for contemporary community work. This challenging piece of integrated writing can be 'a guide to all who seek to bring the shalom of God to all the places of pain and injustice in our world.'"
-Charles Ringma, Professor Emeritus, Regent College, Vancouver, Canada

"When I met Dave Andrews, I could feel the fire burning in him. Then I heard him speak. Then I read his books. Ever since, he has been and continues to be a major inspiration in my life and work."
-Brian McLaren, pastor and best selling author of The Secret Message of Jesus and Everything Must Change.
