All Trinitarian analogies fall short in one aspect or another, but the one I like the best has God as the sun, or the fire, Jesus Christ as the light, and The Holy Spirit as the heat. But to seperate the characteristics of the three is wrong...Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. For in Him all the fullness of God dwells bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.(Colossians 2:8-10)

If you're taking suggested reading, I'd like to point you in the direction of Can Man Live Without God by Ravi Zacharias and Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis...and of course The Bible by God.
