See what Christian leaders are saying about Against Oneness Pentecostalism: "Michael Burgos has produced a brilliant blend of systematic theology and biblical exegesis with a detailed and thorough discussion of the main passages at the center of the dispute between Oneness Pentecostalism and traditional trinitarianism. He argues throughout for certain central elements of trinitarianism, in particular, the eternality of the Son of God and the eternal co-existence of the Father and Son with a focus on the Son's activity in creation. He ably interacts with technical issues including the original languages, Greek grammar, and textual criticism and cogently demonstrates that Oneness Pentecostalism is deeply flawed in its interpretation of Scripture and its understanding of God. Highly recommended for those interested in Oneness Pentecostalism and the biblical teaching regarding Theology Proper and Christology." Alexander E. Stewart Ph.D., Academic Dean and Associate Professor of New Testament Language and Literature at Tyndale Theological Seminary "Oneness theology is nothing more than the crass unitarianism of Judaism and Islam. In this work, Michael Burgos has outlined in a systematic fashion the chief theological assertions of Oneness theology and then provides a point-by-point exegetical refutation. Burgos clearly demonstrates throughout this work that the Scriptural view of a Triune God and preexistent unipersonal Son sharply opposes the Oneness idea of the Son being a mere mode or role of a unitarian deity named, 'Jesus.' Burgos consistently stays fastened to the exegesis of the biblical text both in his positive affirmation of the Trinity and in his thorough dismantlement of Oneness theology. Thus, Burgos has clearly laid out the biblical case against Oneness unitarianism. Edward L. Dalcour, M.Apol., Ph.D. President, Department of Christian Defense Faculty of Theology, North-West University "Are you looking for a careful, serious and fair treatment of Oneness Pentecostalism from an orthodox Christian perspective? Search no further, this is the book you're looking for." Vocab Malone, host of Urban Theologian Radio "Michael Burgos has presented a stalwart defense of the Holy Trinity, and an academic and scholarly explanation of Oneness Pentecostalism. In class polemic style, Burgos gives the reader a defense of truth, as well as a critique of false doctrine." J. D. Hall, host of the Polemics Report and Pastor of Fellowship Baptist Church "In the near 25 years since the publication of Gregory Boyd's Oneness Pentecostals and the Trinity there has been a dearth of critical interaction with the arguments and exegetical underpinnings of Oneness Pentecostal theology. Michael Burgos has taken up this task in Against Oneness Pentecostalism. Here Burgos interacts with the top Oneness Pentecostal and expositors of our day and finds their arguments wanting. This volume has practical implications beyond the debate that exists between trinitarians and Oneness Pentecostals because if popular piety is any indication, then many professing trinitarian Christians are Oneness in practice and Burgos' work will help to show how such thinking is wrong as well as offering an exegetical alternative that is faithful to what God has revealed about himself in Scripture."
