Someone I know has come a long way (atheist to agnostic to whatever Jordan Peterson is) and began by asking me questions. I would typically do what perhaps most of us would do and direct him to the Catechism or other sources if the question wasn't something I couldn't give adequate clarity on. Now he's asking for a good discussion on the Trinity.

Any suggestions?

Discuss it, how? What are his questions? The Three Persons of the Trinity are in the New Testament, and anyone, Catholic or not, can read it.

He wants to understand it further than what the Bible can provide.

The One Thing is Three, by Fr. Michael Gaitley. Easily the best explanation I’ve ever read.

That is a great book to understand basic theology. I gave that book to one of my grandsons when he was in high school. He appreciated it.

Yep, it's good. I gotta read it again.

Or, going a different direction, The Trinity by Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange. :fyi: :fyi: :fyi: :fyi: :fyi: :fyi:

This really helped me to understand as did the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

The Summa is an option too.
