The doctrine of Christianity has acquired its present shape through a process of change that is spread nearly over it's entire history.
Rather than venture into the endless debate on the course of this evolutionary process, the author has chosen to examine the current Christian beliefs primarily on the basis of logic and reason. Among others, the subject of 'Sonship' of Jesus Christ, Atonement, Trinity and the second coming of the Messiah have been discussed at length in this book.

Christianity isn't meant to be interpreted this deeply; no religion is. And certainly not publicly. For me, my religion is how close I am to God and how I honor His word and worship Him. Books like this are unnecessary and offensive to some people. This is why we have churches with preachers and priests who know God better than others do, including this author.
