The Problem of the Trinity [13 pages]
by David Kemball-Cook rated at 3.6 (4 votes so far)
It is the thesis of this paper that there is no viable route between modalism and tritheism for a Trinity defined in the ways that theologians have attempted. There is no internally consistent way of defining or explaining a Trinity which does not result in shipwreck either on the ‘Scylla’ of modalism or in the ‘Charybdis’ of tritheism. There are three ambiguities and confusions in the attempted definitions of the Trinity which have tended to obscure these difficulties.
These books, written by people from diverse backgrounds, express the simple truth that God is one. Some of them are more scholary while others are more autobiographical. In addition, a few of them are available to read online. If you would like more in depth treatment of christian monotheism, these books are the next step to take.

John 1:1 and the Trinity
by Anthony Buzzard [48:11]
rated at 4.1 (out of 26 votes)
The first verse of the Gospel of John is almost always used as a starting point to prove the Trinity. However, is there another way to understand John 1.1? Was John, a first century Jew, articulating the completely non-Jewish idea that God became a human being or have we read that into John 1.1? Join Anthony Buzzard as he explains the meaning of John 1.1-14 in its original Hebrew, thought context.
