The Great Dance
Many people can’t see the relevance of theology to their everyday lives. In The Great Dance, C. Baxter Kruger takes the historic doctrines of the Trinity and Incarnation, shakes them free from their academic dust, and shows how they unlock the hidden truth of our ordinary lives.
From motherhood to baseball, from relationships and music to golf and gardening, Dr. Kruger shows how our human existence is to be understood as a participation in the life of the Father, Son and Spirit.
The Great Dance is a master piece, and epic and astonishing vision of human life and the mystery of its intersection with the life of the Triune God. Dr. Kruger charts a course from the dream of the Father, Son and Spirit to include us to the union of the human race with the Trinity in Jesus Christ. The final two chapters are dedicated to understanding how evil works in our lives to frustrate our participation, and how we can come to our rights minds and live in the great dance of life shared by the Father, Son and Spirit.
Finally! The doctrine of the Trinity put forward in a readable and understandable way without loss of the main ad beautiful point of it all.
“God is not a ‘scarecrow in a melon patch.’ Nor is he like Scrooge, who found it natural to spoil all Christmas festivities. Rather God is, in Baxter Kruger’s inimitable joyous presentation, ‘the God of the great dance.’ For Dr. Kruger gives us a vision of the Christian life that is powerful, winsome, hospitable, intimate, and oh so relevant and personal to the desires of the human heart with its eternal longings.”
