When Jesus Became God: The Struggle to Define Christianity during the Last Days of Rome. A very good historical research book for Jehovah's Witnesses regarding the birth of the Trinity doctrine.The story of Jesus is well known, as is the story of Christian persecutions during the Roman Empire. The history of fervent debate, civil strife, and bloody riots within the Christian community as it was coming into being, however, is a side of ancient history rarely described. Richard E. Rubenstein takes the reader to the streets of the Roman Empire during the fourth century, when a fateful debate over the divinity of Jesus Christ is being fought. Ruled by a Christian emperor, followers of Jesus no longer fear for the survival of their monotheistic faith but break into two camps regarding the direction of their worship. Is Jesus the son of God and therefore not the same as God? Or is Jesus precisely God on earth and therefore equal to Him? The vicious debate is led by two charismatic priests. Arius, an Alexandrian priest and poet, preaches that Jesus, though holy, is less than God. Athanasius, a brilliant and violent bishop, sees any diminution of Jesus' godhead as the work of the devil. Between them stands Alexander, the powerful Bishop of Alexandria, who must find a resolution that will keep the empire united and the Christian faith alive. With thorough historical, religious, and social research, Rubenstein vividly recreates one of the most critical moments in the history of religion.[This book is 267 pages printed in year 1999.]
Does the Bible teach that God is a Trinity? Well who wrote the Bible? Jews. All 40 men who wrote the Bible were Jews and Jews do not believe or worship God as a Trinity. In fact it was the enemies of the Jews who believed in a Trinity such as the Egyptians, Babylonians and so forth. So it does not matter which Bible translation you use or which Scripture you use from the Bible. Since the Bible writers did not believe in a Trinity then it is impossible to find it there even implied. Deut. 6:4 says : "Jehovah our God is One Jehovah".JW.ORG

To All Collectors of Watchtower Publications and Research Related Watchtower Books :
When searching and you type in "Watchtower" you get nearly 5,000 results, some of which have no connection at all with the Watchtower Society but most are. Since the "Proclaimers" book came out in 1995 many haveacquired Watchtower memorabilia and have sought tobasically have their own library or museum of Watchtower items.The Watchtower Society itself now has an "archive department" known as"Writing Archives"which was established by the Writing Committee of the Governing Body to preserve our rich theocratic history. Many of the hundreds of items I offer on are reproductions from the original items which I have donated to the archive department. They are looking for mostly pristine condition items. If you have any original items such as this to donate you may contact "Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania 25 Columbia Heights, Brooklyn, N.Y. 11201 or email to WRTArchives to ask if they need any particular item. When you donate you willreceive an acknowledgment letter from "Writing Archives".
I offer reproductions of Watchtower archives NOT replicas. A replica may have changed texts or were replicated to look like the original. A reproduction however is an actual copy of the original photo or written script. Reproductions therefore last much longer and of course much less expensive. The WT Society however only wants pristine originals which are very costly but it is a gift to Jehovah. [2 Cor. 9:7]. Also many are interested in copying to the best they can the Bethel Library and the thousands of books they refer and quote from in the many publications of the Watchtower Society for research. If you type in"Watchtower research"here on you will get a good listing that are books that the Watchtower uses or has quoted from throughout the years. If you are one of Jehovah's Witnesses I encourage you to donate theocratic historical items if you can and if you are not a Witness then I encourage you to continue to search God's Word the Bible and related publications to guide and aid you in your search for Jehovah God your Creator."This means everlasting lifetheirtaking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ" John 17:3
"And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come" Matt. 24:14.
