This teaching endeavors to uncover the usage of the Hebrew word Elohim, translated in English, God. Elohim, its meaning and its interpretation has been greatly debated in Christendom, giving way to the idea that the word suggests that God is a plurality of persons. Nothing could be further from the truth. The biblical data that begins to unfold during this sermon shows how flexibly the word is used - for the One true God, for angels, men, nations, etc... Click here for part two, entitled "Theos." (This sermon was originally preached at the Red Words Church on 30-May-2010 in Melbourne, Australia.)
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.

1. The Greek word translated “universe” (or “world” in many translations) is the plural of the Greek word aion, and actually means “ages.” There are other Greek words that mean “world,” such as kosmos and oikoumene, and when the Devil tempted Jesus by showing him all the kingdoms of the “world,” these words are used. This verse is referring to the “ages,” not the “world.”
