New Issue of Credo Magazine: Eternal Generation

The new issue of Credo Magazine is now here! Eternal Generation.

The eternal generation of the Son has fallen on hard times. In the last century, evangelicals have dispensed with the doctrine in the spirit of a narrow biblicism—We just believe the Bible! Others have thrown out the doctrine because they cannot master the mystery of such a belief—It just doesn’t make sense! The consequences have been brutal: generation after generation has been cut off from Christian orthodoxy. Just as egregious, evangelicals have not learned how the warp and woof of redemptive history reveals the Son’s origin from the Father from all eternity. In this issue of Credo Magazine, the contributors abandon the critical spirit of our contemporary era and clothe themselves in a spirit of hermeneutical humility. As they sit at the feet of ancient interpreters, they labor to understand why eternal generation not only serves to distinguish the Son from the Father but safeguards the Son’s divine equality with the Father.

Included in this issue are contributions from: R. Scott Clark, Griffin Gulledge, Josh Malone, Ryan McGraw, Madison N. Pierce, Jeriah D. Shank, Shawn Wilhite, Jonathan Parnell, Matthew Barrett, Bradley G. Green, David Fergusson, Robert J. Cara, Jenny-Lyn de Klerk, and Gary Steward.
