Three Fold Art Book Cover

A little giant, far ahead of its time.

Possibly the shortest book that has ever been written on the Trinity, and at the same time the one with the most dramatic impact on the way we lead our lives. In only 32 pages the author demonstrates the practical consequences that arise from not only "believing” in the Trinity, but actually “experiencing” divine reality in the area of each of God‘s three major revelations. A comprehensive introduction to the Trinitarian Compass, that has become the heart of all books on Natural Church Development.
