'Beginning with the current skepticism about God's very existence, Dr. McGrath starts off with some convincing apologetics. The book would be worth buying for this alone. But he does not rely on apologetics., He knows that the only way to be sure about the living God is to encounter him: and this can happen to people who know almost nothing about him. 'Dr. McGrath then develops a number of models which help us to form some conception of God, leading into an important chapter on God as personal. . . There follows a shrewd chapter on the Incarnation, with some very straight talk to theologians who affect to dispense with the deity of Jesus: at the same time Dr. McGrath makes it clear that Jesus is not an exhaustive definition of God. The last four chapters are on the Trinity proper. They are skillfully put together, and avoid dangers such as Modalism on the one hand or Tritheism on the other. Dr. McGrath's fellow-theologians could learn a lot from this book, not least on how to communicate. . . Ordinary Christians devoid of theological training (will find this book a marvelous guide.' -Michael Green

Understanding the Trinity is a revolution in Christian thought and philosophy. True Christianity is a Jewish religion established and organized by Jews. Gentiles were invited by Jews, with God's approval, to participate in the Christian movement. However, Gentile Leaders in most Christian Churches of the world today do not preach the original Christian gospel message of salvation that was first delivered to the saints by the apostle Paul (Galatians 1:8-9). "Understanding the Trinity, Three Persons vs Three Manifestations," will bring us back to the original gospel message, the oneness of God, and the power of God's name in the face of Jesus Christ. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Luke 2:11). When Billy G. Newton, Bishop, Diocesan of the 29th Episcopal District, Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, Inc., Pastor of the Word of God Church read this book, he said, "This book was so fascinating I couldn't put it down." When Kevin Seraaj, M.Div., J.D. Senior Pastor, Cornerstone Baptist Church, Publisher, Central Florida Advocate News read this book, he said, "Understanding the Trinity" is a timely, relevant and extremely provocative piece of work. In a time when the church must be challenged to move out of old ways, notions, thoughts and traditions, this book will without question provide a forum for much-needed theological discussion. For students of the Bible, this book is a must read, for it is always that process of reading, analyzing and debating that enables us to move forward in both our personal and spiritual journeys." Great job!! Author's Note: You have in your possession the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Don't let the birds steal your seeds (Matthew 13:3-13) (KJV). Preview: Dear Reader, If you have picked up this book through curiosity or learned about the book through the news media, talk shows, word of mouth, etc., you have experienced God the way I have experienced God. While writing this book, God showed me information about the Deity of Jesus Christ even though I wasn't looking for it at the time. If you have been searching for God; you have found an understanding of who He is in the pages of this book. While reading, "Understanding the Trinity, Three Persons vs Three Manifestations," God will reveal who He is and show you how to understand the oneness of God in light of our traditional Trinitarian training. The Trinitarian Doctrine is the Gentiles effort to explain how God has revealed himself as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, yet remained one God. God is going to give you, through His Word, the real truth and understanding of who He is so that there will be no confusion as to His person, His name, and the true message of salvation in the face of Jesus Christ. God has given us Biblical proof that Jesus is Lord!! (Deuteronomy 6:4, Luke 2:11). In addition, God will reveal to you, as a believer, a complete understanding of the soundness of the Trinity (II Timothy 4:3, Titus 1:9-16). There have been a number of books written about, "Understanding the Trinity:" however, in most of these Trinitarian books, based on their own understanding and analysis there is no real understanding of the Trinity. If an author doesn't have a complete understanding of the Trinity how can they explain the Trinity to their readers? The writer of this book, "Understanding the Trinity, Three Persons vs Three Manifestations," will give you a complete understanding of whether the Trinity of God is true and whether the Trinity can be completely understood.

Understanding the Trinity. All three major religions identify with the God of Abraham. They differ in their understanding of Jesus. However, one God in three persons is found throughout both Old and New Testament. Getting to know God is critical for understanding the Bible. Yet, it seems that many people have not studied this thoroughly, and have questions like: • Is Jesus truly God? • If so, how, or why is Jesus the Son of God? • If Jesus knew everything as God, why did he pray? • If Jesus is God could he have ever sinned? • What makes God the Father different? • What or who is the Holy Spirit? This book answers all of those questions and more. When people ask, “Does Jesus love me?” The answer is yes, Jesus loves us all, but this love is conditional. The ways that Jesus loves us are from his own words and covered in the section Jesus-loving. How Jesus loves us was demonstrated when he sacrificed his life for us so that we might receive forgiveness and the promise of eternal life. However, not all will be saved. There is only one way to heaven, and the Bible says it is appointed for everyone to die once, then face judgment. (Heb 9:27) So, there will come a judgment day, and whoever rejects Jesus will not have eternal life, because God’s punishment will remain on them (Joh 3:36) The Bible also says many will abandon the faith. (1 Ti 4:1) This book will help you become more secure in your faith by getting to know God in the Old Testament and knowing Jesus through the Old and New Testament as the Trinity is explained. There is a spiritual battle going on, and our eternal destiny is at stake. Satan would like to separate you from God and one method is tempting you to doubt. Beginning in Genesis 3 when tempting Eve, he asked, “did God really say_______?” Since then, Satan has continued to insinuate we should doubt what God has said, or that he can be trusted. You may have heard, or even repeated some of the following statements, that presumably originated with Satan, the father of lies. • Why would a loving God let bad things happen to good people? • Hell does not exist. Why would a loving God send people to hell? • You do not really believe that Jesus is the only way to God, do you? That is narrow minded. What about other spiritual leaders like the Buddha, or Muhammad? • What about the people who never heard about Jesus? When tempted by Satan, Jesus quoted the Bible to refute him. You need to be prepared to do the same. This book is for everyone—because most do not study the Bible. Seemingly, many Christians either just listen to sermons or only sporadically read the Bible. Others may read the New testament but skip the Old thinking it is not relevant anymore or find it difficult to understand. However, we must consider the Bible as a whole to fully appreciate God. To make it easy, this book is written so you can skim, scan or study like speedreading. It includes verses and references to Scripture throughout. It is like going through the Bible in chronological order. As you grow in your knowledge about the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit you will find the Bible much easier to understand and draw nearer to God.

Among Seventh-day Adventists the doctrine of the Trinity is often taken for granted. But increasingly it is opposed by a small minority who have retreated to the anti-Trinitarian position of the pioneers. In response the authors, each a specialist in his field, trace the doctrine of the Trinity through Scripture, church history, and the writings of Ellen G. White.; ; The first section surveys the biblical foundations of the doctrine and addresses objections that have been raised. Other sections trace the development of the doctrine in Christian history, in Adventist history, and in the writings of Ellen White. The authors explain why the doctrine was resisted by many of the leading pioneers.; ; The final section asks "So what?" It discusses the theological and practical implications of Trinitarian belief, worship, and practice, showing how it affects what we believe about salvation, atonement, the great controversy, and other significant doctrines. With glossaries, bibliography, and index, this comprehensive primer on the Trinity will shed new light on the central beliefs of Christianity, and show how God still leads His church into all truth. - Introduction; SECTION ONE--The Biblical Evidence for the Full Deity of Christ, the Personality of the Spirit, and the Unity and Oneness of the Godhead; Chapter 1: The Strongest Bible Evidence for the Trinity; Chapter 2: The Full and Eternal Deity of Christ: Part I--The New Testament Epistles, the Old; Testament, and the Gospels; Chapter 3: The Full and Eternal Deity of Christ: Part II--The Gospel of John; Chapter 4: The Personality and Deity of the Spirit and the Triune Oneness of the Godhead; Chapter 5: Trinitarian Evidences in the Book of Revelation; Chapter 6: Biblical Objections to the Trinity; Chapter 7: Logical Objections to the Trinity; SECTION TWO--The History of the Trinity Doctrine From A.D. 100 to A.D. 1500; SECTION THREE--Trinity and Anti-Trinitarianism From the Reformation to the Advent; Movement; SECTION FOUR--The Doctrine of the Trinity and Its Implications for Christian Thought and Practice; Index

They say that the Trinity is one of the most difficult aspects of Christian Theology to understand. The idea of God being three in one and one in three feels so counterintuitive to many -- laymen and scholars alike. In some ways, this theological position defines the difference between Christian Theology and every other religion's theology. All other religions either define God simply as one, or say there are many gods. Only Christianity defines God as a plurality in unity and unity in plurality.Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ preferred to teach his students through parables. In this way, he could demonstrate how many seemingly complicated ideas were actually very mundane and related to things we all experience every day. For this book, I've followed Christ's example. This way, the deep concepts and most important aspects of understanding the Trinity and how it relates to Salvation are accessible to everyone.This book is not apologetic it nature. It's intended for the one who says "I don't understand the Trinity," rather than the one who says "I don't believe in the Trinity." I do believe that when you understand what the Trinity really is, then you will see why this deep understanding of God's nature is really helpful to us in our daily lives as Christians.Shaun Kennedy is a Christian thinker. Shaun lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife and two children and thinks deep thoughts about deep subjects. Join me in my expedition to understand God deeper and more fully.

Christian Understandings Of The Trinity

In this creative approach to the doctrine of the Trinity, author Veli-Matti Karkkainen focuses on keeping a dynamic balance between the intellectual-doctrinal and spiritual-charismatic approaches as parallel avenues towards theological understanding. His narrative approach draws on direct quotations from key historical theologians to increase appreciation of their theological wisdom and to encourage students to “dig further into this rich spiritual wellspring.” Throughout the two-thousand year span of Christian history, believers in Jesus have sought to articulate their faith and their understanding of how God works in the world. How do we, as we examine the vast and varied output of those who came before us, understand the unity and the diversity of their thinking? How do we make sense of our own thought in light of theirs? The Christian Understandings series is an exciting new series that seeks to illuminate precisely these questions. The short, concise volumes in the Christian Understandings series orient and ‘fill in the gaps’ for readers as they dive into the exciting and stimulating story of Christian thought.

Lack of understanding of the concept of the Holy Trinity has plagued the church of Jesus Christ for more than two thousand years. But this doctrine is not difficult to understand when we restrict ourselves solely to the sayings of our Lord Jesus Christ -the author and finisher of our faith. Although the bible does not mention the word "Trinity" in all the books, however, there is a word mentioned in the bible that confirms the doctrine of the Holy Trinity. This word reveals the plurality-in-unity of the divine nature of God. The word "Godhead" appeared 3 times in the New Testament and an in-depth study of this word, unveils the concept of the Holy Trinity. It was translated from the Greek word "THEIOS" which is translated in Thayer's Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament as the Holy Trinity comprising the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. So the bible do, indeed, mention the Holy Trinity but by a different name. As a former Muslim, the subject of the Holy Trinity became a major stumbling block in my early Christian walk and therefore I devoted almost two decades of my life seeking for answers to this elusive Christian doctrine. Progressively, the Lord gradually revealed this concept to me in a very easy to understand manner. So, in this book, you will find answers to some of the questions that most of us ask in our quest to understand the Holy Trinity. For example, is Jesus Christ the same as God? Or is Jesus Christ the only Begotten Son of God? What did Jesus imply when He said "I and the Father are one". Was He denying the Holy Spirit as part of the trinity since He didn't say, "I, the Father and the Holy Spirit are one" but instead He left out the Holy Spirit and said, "I and the Father are one". These and many other probing questions would be answered based on the sayings of our Lord Jesus Christ. Moreover, did Christendom borrow the doctrine of the trinity from pagan religions in antiquity at the Council of Catholic Bishops at Nicaea in the fourth century AD? Or did the council of Nicaea echo a truth recorded in the bible from the beginning of time? The Holy Scriptures clearly unveils God to the reader without any ambiguity but human interpretations had confused this doctrine thus making it difficult to understand. The bible does not address the Holy Trinity as God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Instead, the bible addresses the Holy Trinity as God the Father, the Son of God and the Holy Spirit of God. So, what is the difference between these two descriptions? Through the pages of this book, you will find answers to these and many other probing questions. Jesus Christ, in the Gospels, answered all these questions.
