This is a series of conversations between major theologians and Matthew Barrett on the doctrine of the Trinity.
In this video, James Eglinton and Matthew Barrett discuss chapter 2 of Barrett’s book, Simply Trinity: The Unmanipulated Father, Son, and Spirit (Baker, 2021). Eglinton and Barrett engage the Nicene Creed, explain why the Fathers chose certain words and concepts to safeguard trinitarian orthodoxy, and connect the dots between the Trinity and worship. Eglinton and Barrett reflect on their own evangelical experience to help the church and academy return to a biblical and Nicene doctrine of the Trinity today.
Dr James Eglinton is Meldrum Senior Lecturer in Reformed Theology at the University of Edinburgh. His new book, Bavinck: A Critical Biography, was published by Baker Academic.
Matthew Barrett is the author of Simply Trinity: The Unmanipulated Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Baker). He is the founder and executive editor of Credo Magazine and host of the Credo podcast. He is associate professor of Christian theology at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
