About the Book

The Triune God: Philosophical Concepts and Facts is a book I wrote after thorough preparation. While I was studying the Bible through the years I met many obstacles. Those obstacles were questions in my mind about the Triune God. I searched for decades to find the answers. I realized that the scholars didn't answer the questions but they were trying to convince us that there is a mystery for every question and they never had direct answers.

In this book I answer questions such as these, "How can we imagine with a simple example the existence of the Triune God? If God planned everything, why are we punished? Is there inconsistency between God's plan and the sinner's punishment or the sinner's free will? Do we have a free will? Do we resemble God? Is it possible Jesus was God and a human being at the same time? If Jesus was a human being, was it possible for the human body to ascend into heaven and to become invisible? Was Jesus only a human being or just a prophet? Is it possible for a human being or a prophet to order a dead man to walk out of his tomb or to order the storm to stop without praying earlier and publicly to God to make these miracles happen?"

The answers are from the Bible and the Bible affects us all. My book points out answers for all of the mysteries I questioned through the years for anyone to consider when he or she thinks about God.

About the Author

I was born in Egypt into a Coptic family. I grew up surrounded by friends of different religions. The Middle East was in a constant state of war when I was growing up. Although it was a difficult time I continued to search for answers. I read the Bible several times because I wanted to know God. He comforted me in my struggle to survive.

I have never forgotten the peace God gave me during those years. I obtained my high school diploma, and after two years, I graduated from a community college. A few years later, I immigrated to the United States of America. In America, I graduated from the University of the State of New York, Regents College with a Bachelor of Science. Three years later, I graduated from City University with a Master of Business Administration.

In my graduate studies at City University, I specialized in the field of leadership. My study gave me the background I needed to read the Bible as a reference book about God's leadership. It is ironic to experience the leadership of God who is, for some people, invisible. The leadership of the Bible influences all of us very deeply. I was extremely happy during the long hours I spent researching, and writing The Triune God: Philosophical Concepts and Facts. And I am hoping when the readers read this book it will have the same effect on them.

Through the years I wrote, poetry, short stories and minute plays, and thoughts in religion and philosophy.
