This book critically examines the claims of Oneness theology in light of biblical exegesis. Specifically, it affirms the biblical presentation of the one true God existing as three coequal, coeternal, and coexistent distinct persons–the Father, and the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit. Further, it provides an exegetical refutation to the Oneness theological assertion that God is a non-triune unitarian deity devoid of persons, thus making the claim that Jesus is the Father (and Holy Spirit). As with the previous editions, the 4th edition of A Definitive Look at Oneness Theology contrasts Oneness theology and its claims with biblical theology. The 4th edition contains additional material both textually and historically as well as expanded commentary on particular passages.
“Dr. Edward Dalcour’s work is a much needed contribution to answering the heretical theological claims of the UPCI. I am sure readers will find engaging this scholarly treatise that both documents UPCI beliefs and answers them with clear, concise exegesis of the biblical texts in question. Dalcour’s work needs to find a place on the shelves of concerned Christians who are dialoguing with adherents of the UPCI. In the process of digesting Dalcour’s work, Christians will find that their Christology has been sharpened and their knowledge of the doctrine of the Trinity deepened.”
—Dr. Steven Tsoukalas, Executive Director of Sound Doctrine Ministries and Adjunct Faculty, E. Stanley Jones School of World Mission and Evangelism, Asbury Theological Seminary
“For those who do not have time to conduct the exegetical work necessary to refute Oneness claims but who wish to be theologically informed or to discuss the doctrine of the Trinity with theologians in the United Pentecostal tradition, Dalcour has provided a valuable resource.”
—John D. Laing, Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Southwestern Theological Seminary, Harvard School for Theological Studies
