New Credo Podcast: Trinity Drift (Part One)

In this episode of the Credo Podcast, Matthew Barrett fields questions from Ronni Kurtz about his new book, Simply Trinity: The Unmanipulated Father, Son and Spirit (Baker). They discuss how, despite appearance, the glut of twentieth century literature about the Trinity does not constitute a Trinity resurgence, but rather a Trinity drift. They observe the ways social Trinitarianism has redefined the Trinity and they lament the tendency to manipulate the Trinity for every social agenda under the sun.

Barrett also reveals how we can find our way back to a biblical, orthodox understanding of the Trinity. He not only explains how the Trinity is revealed in salvation history but advises we exercise historical humility by reading the scriptures with the help of the Dream Team.
