Item description for The Trinity: The Classic Study of Biblical Trinitarianism by Edward Henry Bickerseth...
Overview Although the word Trinity is not found in the Bible, it is foundational to the Christian faith. Hard to explain and even harder to defend, the Trinity has been the subject of speculaion and debate down through the ages. Edward Bickersteth's classic clarifies the true nature of the Trinity, explaining what it is, and equally important, what it is not. Through Biblical evidence he brings theory to the level of heart and life, where it can make a difference. We see Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in relation to each other and in relation to ourselves-and love them anew.

HEAVY Jan 11, 2007
Reads like a formal study on the Trinity with tons of biblical references and footnotes. Not an easy read, but a good source.

I must echo the positive comments of others who point out Bickersteth's solid treatment of Scripture, his clarity of wonderful truths expressed to Christ's sheep, and the book's usefulness in combatting the wide range of attacks against such a precious doctrine. The primary focus on Scripture is key. Bickersteth shows that the Trinity isn't based on Catholic dictionary definitions, pagan concepts of God, physical analogies in nature such as water, arbitrary numerics, or even in the Church's creeds that faithfully represent Scripture's teaching, but in God's inspired revelation of Himself to His people. If you embrace the ideas of this book, you will have a much greater appreciation for the Triune God Who expresses perfect Love within Himself (1 John 4:8) eternally first, and then reaches to share that love with His people (1 John 1:1-7). Then you can appreciate the God to Whom Christ submitted and prayed in His human nature, and called His Father, being 'like us' as our example.
The Classic Study of Biblical Trinitarianism Mar 17, 2006
I found the book to be a little difficult to digest.
Outstanding book in support of the Doctrine of the Trinity Apr 19, 2004
This was my textbook in a seminary course on Doctrine of the Trinity. I have never seen such a clear point by point proof of the Doctrine of the Trinity. Bickersteth was writing about a hundred years ago in response to Unitarian opposition to the doctrine in England. Just Bickersteth's writing style makes this book a joy to read. He goes overboard in with politeness in dealing with a sensitive issue addressing his opponents with genuine love and concern in his words. He very adequately proves that the doctrine is a biblical doctrine. After reading this book with an open mind and an honest heart, the only way to get around accepting that the bible teaches the Doctrine of the Trinity is to refuse to accept what is written as authoritative. Many other excellent books deal with the subject of Textual Criticism. If after reading Bickersteth's book you still oppose the Doctrine of the Trinity, read some books on Textual Criticism. It's amazing how much evidence there is to support being able to trust the accuracy of the biblical texts. At there very least, if this book doesn't change your mind you'll have no doubts whatsoever about why adherents to the doctrine believe what they do.

I had a lot of questions about the Godhead. The Lord used this book to answer everyone of them.
