Logos: What is the "Word"? [31:24]
by Jim Rankin rated at 1.6 (6 votes so far)
Often in our Bible study it's important to fully study out the meaning and interpretation of a passage to better understand the writer's intention. And, of course, English Bibles are a translation, not the original text. When we examine the original languages, we might be surprised to learn how one little "word" could be translated so many ways.
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. Note: if you know of other books, not listed here, please leave us feedback.
