This chapter explores the meaning and coherence of the doctrine of the Trinity. In the process, it develops an a priori argument for the necessity of that doctrine, to back up the argument from revelation for its truth. It holds that Social Trinitarianism allows for intelligibility and consistency with creedal orthodoxy. It argues that there are three divine individuals. The three divine persons are three souls, three rational individuals. In the discussion, tritheism is the view that there are three independent divine beings, any of which could exist without the other, or which could act independently of each other.
