The Holy Trinity and the Law of Three: A Review
A review of The Holy Trinity and the Law of Three by Matthew Wright.
Cynthia Bourgeault’s “The Holy Trinity and the Law of Three” is a great gift. She offers us a metaphysical road map that sets Christianity back on course with its own deepest heart, allowing it to come of age for the 21st century. By undergirding traditional doctrines with a dynamic metaphysical framework, she frees Christianity from some of its own historic “stuck points” and sets it up as a living–and much needed–spiritual force for the world today. All this she does with a clarity, simplicity, and depth of writing that make this book an absolute delight to read.

It was my turn to facilitate a small evolutionary group I’m in and we did some exercises using the law of three to tackle specific obstacles in each of our lives (there are five of us in this group). The group members were not familiar with the law of three so I had them listen to Cynthia’s talks at St Philips, especially the third talk. Everyone caught the drift as this type of conversation is familiar to us and we ended up with our obstacles having a common thread and very similar new emergences. It was great fun and I hope to do it again and take it into my church group that is going to study Cynthia’s new book in January.
I did write a review giving a five star rating, and made the comment that in this book Cynthia exercises herself the law of three in going beyond past polarities on the question of our understanding of the triune Godhead and completes and complements the earlier work by her friend and Camaldolese monk Bruno Barnhart called The Second Simplicity. http://www.amazon.com/review/R1QN1QQUC3W1CJ/ref=cm_cr_pr_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00DRFL1TE&linkCode=&nodeID=&tag=
I recently saw the Oscar Award-winning documentary, “Searching for Sugar Man.” I loved the film, but didn’t really understand why I loved it until I started reading Cynthia’s new book about the Law of Three.
