BBNC - Personal Note Carlos F. Pinkham 7/15/2019  
Carlos's book, "The Trouble with the Trinity" has just been published by Covenant Books. "The trouble" is that the Trinity is complicated, so people don't take the time to discover the numerous and diverse ways God has described Himself as Triune in His Word. As a result, people are too easily swayed to miss the Three-in-One.

The book incorporates nearly 1000 Biblical passages that convincingly show God's Triune nature captured in all eight possible ways Three could be One. Then it shows how these eight ways weave together in a startling symbol significant to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

The book incorporates mathematics and science, especially the biological sciences, written with plain language, into the discussions of the Trinity. Some of the proposed connections are new. It also considers other symbols and icons of the Trinity for their ability to reflect aspects of the Triune Godhead.
