DETAILS

A first edition of The Catholic Doctrine of a Trinity by William Jones, with a letter to the reader, an advertisement, the Doctrine, followed by a conclusion and a list of texts explained and enlarged upon in the preceding work.

The extended title of this book reads:

The Catholic Doctrine of a Trinity Proved By above an Hundred short and clear Arguments, expressed in the terms of the Holy Scripture, Compared after a manner entirely New and Digested under the four following titles: 1. the Divinity of Christ, 2. The Divinity of the Holy Ghost, 3. the Plurality of Persons, 4. The Trinity in Unity With a few Reflections, occasionally interspersed, upon some of the Arian Writers, particularly Dr S. Clarke. To which also is prefixed A Discourse to the Reader on the necessity of Faith in the true God, and upon diversity of opinion.

The Catholic Doctrine of the Trinity itself is split into four parts; the Divinity of Christ, The Divinity of the Holy Ghost, The Plurality of Persons and the Trinity in Unity.

"In this Catholic Doctrine of a Trinity Jones maintains that the orthodox doctrine of the Trinity is properly grounded in the Bible, and accordingly criticizes Socinian or Unitarian views on the matter as well as the biblical interpretation of Samuel Clarke." (David Arthur Pailin).

What Our Customers Say...

Just to let you know my signed by the grand daughters, limited edition of Stories from Dickens arrived safely in Melbourne this morning. Considering that I only placed the order on 24th March, 5 days ago, I am again astonished at your fantastic prompt and safe delivery of a well protected book in a DHL box half way across the world.

Many, many other leading book dealers around the world come nowhere close to your efficient dispatch and delivery service.

Chris, Australia
