The Development of the Trinity by Glen Davidson

The Trinity was a new doctrine that developed. This book is replete with nearly 300 footnotes, a section on the history of non-biblical words such as "God the Son", a great summary, and a comprehensive annotated bibliography. The author quotes historians and primary material for the proofs. He charts the step-by-step development of what became the Trinity in three general stages: Father-Son questions, the Holy Spirit added as a person, and three persons in communion. This study details the how Christ became as a pre-existent second "person" in the godhead.

Very well documented; I highly recommend this book. The author is not heavy handed, but provides helpful and scholarly information that is helpful in developing an understanding of this complex issue. I have studied the Bible avidly for about 18 years with an open mind to learning truth, and I appreciate the research Mr Davidson has layed out in this book. Excellent work!

As a lifelong student of the Bible, one cannot help but eventually delve into history in order to Better understand the context by which scriptures speaks. I have read other books that talk about the development of the trinity and they become technically wordy and challenging to read. This is the first book I have read on the subject that makes simple sense. Great job in taking a complex subject and making it simple! I highly recommend this book as a great starter for anyone that seriously wants to delve into the dogma of doctrine according to the "apostolic fathers" of the earlier centuries. This book will give you a better and basic understanding of the context which surrounded the early church centuries and will help you to historically apply it to your study of the Bible.

Where did they every get "God the Son" as a co-equal partner with God the Father? In fact this "God the Son" was partner in eternity even before Jesus was born! Wow---this explains it! Great job! Highly, highly recommended!
