This was an excellent and well thought out history and explanation of varied views of the Trinity and their logical problems. Unlike most I've read, this author rather than make assumptions as facts, usually explained the thoughts behind the assumptions. He explained the origins and problems of the theological traditions surrounding the explanations of God and the relation of The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It is helpful to have an actual bible and check the context of some of the scriptures. A transliteration would be good for some of the verses to look up context from original language such as scripture4all.org is a free source though limited in being compatible with KJV rather than earlier source material Greek texts.
This book contains within it assertions that not only do not take into account the totality of the textually basis for Trinitarianism, but also a variety of logically fallacious conclusions and argumentation. The arguments made within the work have been refuted a multitude of times by biblical Christianity. I would encourage any prospective readers to read this book with caution and accompany it with the Scriptures themselves. Also, please visit GrassrootsApologetics.org if you have questions concerning the nature of God, the identity of the Son of God and so forth.
