One God in Three Persons: Unity of Essence, Distinction of Persons, Implications for LifeBy: Wayne Grudem, Robert Letham
How do the three persons of the Trinity relate to each other? Evangelicals continue to wrestle with this complex issue and its implications for our understanding of men's and women’s roles in both the home and the church.
Challenging feminist theologies that view the Trinity as a model for evangelical egalitarianism, One God in Three Persons turns to the Bible, church history, philosophy, and systematic theology to argue for the eternal submission of the Son to the Father.
