What does it mean for God to be triune? When the trinitarian phrase eternal generation is used, what is it referring to exactly? Why did the Fathers of the Church believe eternal generation was crucial for a biblical view of the Trinity over against heresy? In this episode, Dr. Matthew Barrett is joined by Dr. Fred Sanders to frame a robust theological understanding of one of Christianity’s most essential doctrines.

Fred Sanders teaches in the Torrey Honors Institute at Biola University, where he has served since 1999. He has written a number of books, including The Deep Things of God: How the Trinity Changes Everything, The Triune God, and The Image of the Immanent Trinity: Rahner’s Rule and the Theological Interpretation of Scripture
