This is the first of a series of conversations between major theologians and Matthew Barrett on the doctrine of the Trinity. In this first video, Thomas Kidd, professor at Baylor University, and Matthew Barrett engage topics like: evangelicalism’s suspicion towards history and creeds, recent drift away from Nicene trinitarianism, the rise of social trinitarianism, the need for theological retrieval, and the Dream Team. Kidd and Barrett discuss chapter 1 of Barrett’s book, Simply Trinity: The Unmanipulated Father, Son, and Spirit (Baker, 2021).
