This book is a comprehensive and concise treatment of the philosophical, theological and biblical issues related to the doctrine of God. Within its pages the nature, existence, and tri-unity of God are presented in an understandable and clear manner. The authora€™s objective was to hold in highest regard the text of Holy Scripture while reflecting the biblical position of the historic orthodox faith. The booka€™s tone is polemic and passionate, sincere and scholarly with a commitment to communicate the truth of Goda€™s Word with simplicity and profundity. Also, between its covers, you will find a wealth of information with numerous references and explanatory notes for clarification and further personal study. The book is arranged around the concept of the term a€œlogosa€ which suffixes many other words and turns them into fields of study, as in the phrase a€œtheologya€ (Theos-logos). The term a€œLogosa€ refers to the concepts of epistemology, ontology, and hermeneutics. Applied to the doctrine of God, its organization deals with a€œKnowing God, a€ a€œthe Being of God, a€ and a€œCommunicating God.a€ This corresponds to Thomas Aquinasa€™s approach to understanding God, in the questions: what is God (we define God by negation, what He is not); how do we know God (we know him by His effects); how do you communicate or explain God (God is communicated to us by His names, that is, His attributes). The book, furthermore, presents a classic and newly reworked argument for the existence of God called a€œthe Existential Argument, a€ which is based on the notion of being.Hence the existence of God, in so far as it is not selfevident to us, can be demonstrated from those of His effects which are known to us. ...
