With humor and ease, Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC, deftly unlocks the “one thing,” the key to the Church’s wisdom, and the greatest mystery of the Catholic faith: the Most Holy Trinity. Far from being an academic read, The ‘One Thing’ Is Three makes deep theology accessible to everyday Catholics. Further, it makes even what’s familiar or forgotten new, exciting, and relevant.

This is a theology book. But all Christians should read it to understand the importance of the Trinity and how Jesus is part of that and we are part of Jesus. There is much more than just salvation that Jesus provides. The good part is that it is easy to read and understand, but you will read it slowly since the ideas are all worth absorbing.
We've already read his first two books and they did set the stage for this one. It may be more difficult to start with this one. There is a DVD that you can optionally buy that supplements the book. It is not a replacement for this book, but rather just a good supplement.
Waterford, MI Fr. Gaitley is one of the working-person's reality priests. The best application to his presentations is through a Bible study; yes, with other people learning too. The Marian Press provides the complete "retreat" package including the DVD's and Workbooks. It is not a hard program. We can "retreat" back to our cars at lunch, in the airport while waiting for the delayed, overbooked flight, or other opportunity like read One Thing is Three rather than opening the ice cream container to feed the soul, not the waistline (aka in this case: Fasting). It is good to hear Priests, Sisters, and Religious-minded person's stories and hear what and how they learned while they have discerned their vocation to serve us in the instant access "selfie" world. Too many people have a judgment of a Priest, Sister, or Brother's life with too few taking the time to understand how, why, and what influences them to take in the challenges we give them. Fr. Gaitley...
The book maybe a little wordy in the beginning for a newbie to religious literature, but as you get into the explanations and the meat of the book, it is excellent. Fr. Gaitly takes the time to walk you through a concept as if he is sitting right in front of you and painting a picture with his words. The question here is do we even take the time anymore to even consider these concepts in our rush around lives? I recently was watching some television show and noticed how the action was sped up of cars and people rushing from place to place. It made me think how unaware we are of our surroundings anymore. This book will produce deep thoughts, be prepared to be slowed down, and to actually think!
