But why does the apostle Paul end his letter to the Corinthians with a benediction naming the triune God in a different order Son Father Spirit In fact there are six possible arrangements for naming the Trinity each of which is used numerous times in the New Testament. Analyzing the seventy-five New Testament references to the persons of the Godhead theologian Rodrick Durst demonstrates that the ways the early church thought and talked about the Trinity had a great deal of richness and diversity that has since been lost. From the context of these passages Durst concludes that each order of the three names corresponds to a particular purpose or movement of God that the New Testament author is invoking mission salvation witness to Christ sanctification spiritual for- mation and Church unity. These six Trinitarian orders reveal Gods calling to join Him in six different works. Durst guides the reader through the significance of each for- mulation and how it can powerfully shape the twenty-first-century church and believers formation worship witness and work. Rodrick K.
