Triune Beauty

The second paragraph of Mike Reeves' excellent new book, Delighting in the Trinity--
This book . . . will simply be about growing in our enjoyment of God and seeing how God's triune being makes all his ways beautiful. It is a chance to taste and see that the Lord is good, to have your heart won and yourself refreshed. For it is only when you grasp what it means for God to be a Trinity that you really sense the beauty, the overflowing kindness, the heart-grabbing loveliness of God. If the Trinity were something we could shave off God, we would not be relieving him of some irksome weight; we would be shearing him of precisely what is so delightful about him. For God is triune, and it is as triune that he is so good and desirable. 
--Michael Reeves, Delighting in the Trinity: An Introduction to the Christian Faith (IVP, 2012), 9 (italics original)
