It is true that in a few verses the first-person plural pronoun is used, but in the vast majority of verses the first-person singular pronoun is used, even though its antecedent is plural! This is a significant grammatical anomaly. To whom might God be talking at Genesis 1:26?
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.

This teaching is part 2 of where Echad left - uncovering the usage of the NT Greek word Eis, translated in English, one. The trend that is found in the OT Hebrew regarding Echad, which means numerically one, is carried into the NT - "eis" and its counterparts words like "en", "monos" and the like, clearly bring to light the wonderful truth that God is a single person, not triune as the popular tradition of the Trinity asserts. This teaching attempts to present the biblical data.
