Product Description
A Personal Reflection on the Biblical Teaching in Light of the Theological Criteria of Islam. This book is a culturally relevant presentation of the truth of the Trinity to the Muslim mindset. Originally it was issued through a Turkish secular publishing house and had a countrywide repercussion, even in Islamic circles. It is a useful presentation for both Muslim and Christian readers, providing fundamental keys for understanding and explaining the Trinity.

"It is a high privilege to recommend this unique book authored by long-term Spanish worker in Turkey. I can think of no other person more qualified to speak to the themes of the Christian Trinity to a secular or religious readership.
Here we have a tested and articulate veteran of Islamic ministries who has seen his understandings put through the crucible, thus producing gold. My forty-two years of cross-cultural ministry have convinced me of the urgent need and strategic role that wise publications play in our engagement with those of Muslim convictions."
--William D. Taylor, global ambassador,
World Evangelical Alliance, senior mentor, WEA Mission

"Carlos Madrigal has come out with a masterful work on the Trinity. Even though it is designed for Muslims, it could well be used anywhere. This is the work of a first-class mind dealing with Christianity’s most difficult subject, especially in the face of Muslim misunderstandings of it. Anyone who reads this work will be wonderfully comforted in knowing how beautifully the triune God has moved to achieve our eternal salvation. I believe this book will become a classic." --Don McCurry, director of Ministries to Muslims, and author of Healing the Broken Family of Abraham and Tales That Teach
