Did the Society misrepresent the New Catholic Encyclopedia on its position concerning the trinity?

Yes. The Society suggests that the New Catholic Encylopedia denies the historic trinity: It teaches that…this doctrine was unknown to the Hebrew prophets and Christian apostles…it also admits that the doctrine must be dated as from about three hundred and fifty years after the death of Jesus Christ.”

The Truth That Leads to Eternal Life, p. 22

A simple reading of page 306 of the New Catholic Encyclopedia, Vol. XIV, will demonstrate that both conclusions by the Society were erroneous. Clearly, Paul and the Gospels taught the triunity of God and the Catholics hold to this belief.
