We must understand that both “God” and “pneuma hagion” (“holy spirit”) can refer to something other than a separate “person” in the Trinity. Since there is no verse that actually states the doctrine of the Trinity, its existence is built from assumption and by piecing verses together. Verses such as Acts 5:3 and 4 are used as “proof,” for the doctrine, but that is actually circular reasoning.
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.

Where does your faith begin? Is it in this world? Is it in man? Is it in yourself? Or is your hope anchored in something greater? How does knowing who Jesus is affect how you live? How does knowing his willing sacrifice for you affect what you're willing to sacrifice for him? (This was part of the revival services at Brush Creek Church of God - November 30, 1972)
