Overview

What's special about Oneness Pentecostals?

In this penetrating analysis of Oneness theology and practice, Gregory Boyd reveals the experience of four years of personal involvement in a Oneness church.

Although Oneness Pentecostals' belief in Christ's deity establishes some common ground with other Christians, their aggressive denial of the Trinity has nonetheless fostered their indisputably sub-Christian ideas about God's character, about salvation, and about Christian living.

A world-wide movement is assessed by a former oneness Pentecostal who warns that the time has passed for ignoring this small group. Boyd clarifies misconception that the early church believed a "oneness" gospel and carefully distinguishes the views of oneness believers from trinitarian Pentecostals and charismatics.

    Excellent

    An excellent overall answer to many questions posed by this heretical modalistic cult. Boyd satisfies all doubt and then presents a Jesus who does not demand a legalistic behavior-based salvation, but one that is based solely on grace through faith.
