Review: The Trinity by Marie D. Jones and Larry Flaxman

The Trinity Secret: The Power of Three and the Code of CreationThe Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Millions of people recognize the Holy Trinity, but few understand that the concept behind it is not limited to a single religion or belief system. What if the Trinity were an ancient code, a formula, a secret so simple yet so powerful, it could change the way we look at our relationship with the Creator and with creation?

The Trinity Secret began with the simple discovery that a trinity or triune nature plays an integral role in all that ever was, is, or will be. From religion, mythology, folklore and psychology to neurophysiology, quantum physics, and even the cutting-edge world of noetics and human consciousness - the concept of a trinity is universal. The number three is a profound and sacred number that speaks of a secret older than humankind.

Just a few of the famous trinities include:

  • Father-Son-Holy Spirit

  • Unconscious-Conscious-Superconscious

  • Earth-Hell-Heaven

  • Maiden-Mother-Crone

  • Brahma-Vishnu-Shiva

  • Birth-Life-Death

  • Newton's Three Laws of Motion

    Join best-selling authors Jones and Flaxman as they embark on a fascinating journey to reveal the secret of the power of three and unlock the code behind the creative force of the universe...a force which each and every one of us has access to.

    This one gets three stars.  I normally won't touch a book smacking of religion with a ten foot pole, but this intrigued me.  It was very well researched and written and did not focus on a particular religion but covered instances of threes in multiple religions as well as, surprisingly, Paganism.  Some of the discussions were hackle raising for me as they delved into religious doctrine, but the remainder of the book was informative and I now have a new appreciation for the number three!  I had been introduced to the concept most recently by a Discworld novel which discussed the maiden/mother/crone trinity so it was nice to read more about that.  Incidentally, it was pure accident that this ended up being a three star rating!  Really!  I do recommend this to anyone who is interested in the subject as it is a thorough discussion of the topic.
