Trinity After Pentecost considers the triune God from a Pentecostal viewpoint. In so doing, it offers a fresh articulation of the theology of the Trinity, taking the Holy Spirit as its starting point. It concludes that the Trinity cannot be adequately appreciated using any single model - whether social, modal, or psychological. Instead, it presents three models - relational, instrumental, and substantial - that must be held in paradoxical tension with one another to gain insight into the Trinity. Of these, the relational model is the foremost. Pentecost offers rich potential for seeing the relations between the Father, the Son and the Spirit as a dynamic reciprocal 'dance', in which each Person empties their 'self ' in order to exalt the others.

This is a fine, concise, systematic and inspiring book about the Trinity. Atkinson's style, as those who have read his other books know, is noted for its clarity and precision ... This is a book that I hope will become a classic among Pentecostals since it addresses issues that are well beyond the sterile argumentation that sometimes occurs. William K. Kay, Journal of the European Pentecostal Theological Association, vol 35 issue 1, April 2015 "Atkinson is an extremely clear writer, and I would recommend this book to anyone, academically trained or otherwise...to anyone who seeks to understand more about the Spirit's role and importance within the Trinity, and to anyone who is interested in exploring a fresh, but ultimately very traditional, account of the doctrine of the Trinity." -Joanna Leidenhag, The Expository Times, Volume 127(5), 2016
