Dr.Barrett Credo Final-0097

Matthew Barrett on the Simple Trinity

Recently, Dr. Matthew Barrett sat down to discuss his book, Simply Trinity (Baker, 2021) on the For the Church Podcast. Hosted by his friend and MBTS colleague, Jared Wilson, the episode discusses the importance of Trinitarian theology for pastoral ministry, the orthodoxy of divine simplicity, what’s up with the EFS debate, and more.

Listen to the episode here!


What if the Trinity we’ve been taught is not the Trinity of the Bible? In this groundbreaking book, Matthew Barrett reveals a shocking discovery: we have manipulated the Trinity, recreating the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in our own image. We have distorted the Trinity to justify our countless social agendas. The result: we have drifted away from the orthodox Trinity of the Bible.

With clarity, creativity, and conviction Barrett mines the scriptures as well as the creeds and confessions of the faith to help you rediscover the beauty and simplicity of our Triune God. Barrett introduces you to The Dream Team, the best of the church fathers, who teach us how to interpret the Bible in a way that avoids past and present trinitarian heresies. You will also be surprised to learn that what you believe about the Trinity has untold consequences for salvation and the Christian life. To truly know God, you must meet the One who is simply Trinity.
