Book Description

Discover Afresh the Living Truth of a Foundational Christian Belief

The Trinity is a basic teaching of the Christian faith. It defines God's essence and describes how He relates to us. The Forgotten Trinity is a concise, understandable explanation of what the Trinity is and why it matters. It refutes cultic distortions of God. It shows how a grasp of this significant teaching leads to renewed worship and deeper understanding of what it means to be a Christian. And amid
today's emphasis on the renewing work of the Holy Spirit, The Forgotten Trinity is a balanced look at all three persons of the Trinity.

I found the book to very informative, and even though White states right up front it is not intended to be an apologetic for the Trinity (but written for believers by a believer), I think it is an apologetic. One can read the chapters and skip much of the technical apologetic, but one could also really dig into the footnotes and see White's answers to Stafford's [Jehovah's Witnesses Defended] sidestepping the diety of Christ. The reviewer RStamp below obviously did not really read the book for the chapter on the I AM statements is excellent. At first RStamp insinuates that White is trying to lose people in to much Greek and Hebrew then he complains that there was not enough Greek and Hebrew comparison!! But Rstamp, as White says in the beginning, this book was not written for anti-trinitarians. It is funny that Rstamp insinuates that the existence of this book is a sign that the doctrine of the Trinity needs "shoring up." By that logic, then the JWs denial of Christ needs shoring up as evidenced by Stafford's book! White has done it again with an excellent book. I cannot honestly see where some of the brethren who have posted lukewarm reviews are coming from. I have read several of his books and this one is right on par. I am on my third read, and pages are falling out! And I agree with my fellow reviewer that it is the height of irony that Isaiah 43:10-11 is the verse where the JWs get their name, but it is the same verse that connects back to the I AM statements of Jesus and where Jehovah makes the claim that there is no Saviour but Him!!!

James White is a true teacher and scholar. A mark of this is his ability to take complex subjects and make them readable on a layperson's level. The Forgotten Trinity is no exception. Page by page, White defines the Biblical basis for the Trinity, bringing back into focus the MAJOR point of division between Christianity and the cults (Mormons, JW's, UPC, The Way International, Christian Science, etc...)- the nature of God. Dr. White writes on a level that even a beginner could understand, which makes this book an excellent resource for a new believer. This book is not written as an apologetic tool, but moreso to demonstrate what the Trinity IS- which even many Biblical Christians cannot define correctly or misdefine. Highly recommended!

The Trinity is foundational to Christian thought on the grounds as the author passionatly asserts, is the very 'heart' of the Gospel. There is among a multitude of Christians a mindset to accept a teaching on the basis that it aligns with their respective churches. Many Christians accept the Trinity because that's just 'the way it has always been'. When the threat of opposition from anti-Trinitarian groups, such as Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons and Oneness Pentecosts come, we are disarmed of any meaningful defense. James R. White, in 'The Forgotten Trinity seeks to honestly present a Biblical foundation of the Trinity. Note I say biblical, because some of us appeal to philosophical, (viz, water, solid, steam) analogies to form a basis of in the Triune God. Not only are the analogies logically inconsistent and horrible, but they draw people away from Biblical revelation. If you are a Christian who wants to understand his faith better, or if you are acquainted with the Trinity and seek to broaden your Biblical horizon; I could not recommend 'The Forgotten Trinity' enough!

2.0 out of 5 stars Best to Be Forgotten 10 Feb. 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book consists of three parts. Chapters 1 and 2 should explain what the Trinity is, chapters 3 - 11 focuse on well known proof-text and chapters 12 - 14 are mostly about the Church and its history. Unfortunately, the first part is a failure. There are basically two ways a person can try to understand what New Testament writers had in mind when they identified Jesus as God. The first one is what the Church did over the first 4 centuries, i.e. to employ Greek philosophical concepts. That is exactly what James does. He leaves terms like homoousion for later but his explanation of the Trinity as one what (the being or essence of God) and three whos (the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit) is something alien to the Bible. If we want to understand the deity of Christ we have to go back to the first century and read in that context.

Although Paul may have been familiar with Greek philosophy he and the other NT writers were rooted in the Jewish Bible and contemporary Judaism. Consequently, we have to ask what the Tanakh has to say about the "plurality" of God. Michael Brown (Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus, Vol. 2, Ch. 3.1-3.3) does a good job of providing answers. The famous prologue of John is best understood when read in the context of Aramaic Targums, i.e. translations and paraphrases of the Hebrew Tanakh that were read in the synagogues. If I were a Jew in Palestine in the first century and someone came and called Jesus "the Word of God who became flash and pitched his tent among us" I would have known exactly what he was talking about without even thinking of a predicate nominative construction in Greek and other stuff James writes about.
