Episode: Fred Sanders and OnScript host Matthew Bates talk Trinitarian theology. Fred’s exciting book, The Triune God, is the launching point for the discussion. Discover why it is imperative that we correctly order our Trinitarian doctrine (and why Matt shouldn’t be a narcissist), how Rahner’s Rule was formulated, and the appropriate boundaries of mystery in Trinitarian discourse. Fred and Matt also discuss why compromising Trinitarian doctrine invariably results in a compromise of the gospel itself. Fred’s book is loaded with exciting new proposals that all theologians and biblical scholars would do well to consider. Join the conversation.
Guest: Fred Sanders is a professor at Biola University in the Torrey Honors Institute. With Oliver Crisp he also co-convenes the Los Angeles Theology Conference.
