New Credo Podcast: Since When Did the Trinity Go Social?

This is a series of conversations between major theologians and Matthew Barrett on the doctrine of the Trinity.

In this episode, Craig Carter and Matthew Barrett discuss chapter 3 of Barrett’s book, Simply Trinity: The Unmanipulated Father, Son, and Spirit (Baker, 2021). Carter and Barrett discuss topics such as the legacy of Nicaea in light of the rise of social trinitarianism, the state of the trinity in evangelicalism, and the difference between the classical doctrine of God and modernity’s redefinition of theology proper.

Listeners will also learn how classic works like Macbeth and A Christmas Carol help us understand the relationship between Nicaea and the 21st century! Craig even shares his own journey away from modern theology to a biblical and orthodox doctrine of the Trinity, putting his finger on what exactly opened his eyes to modernity’s revisionist view of God.
