Product Description

More than 1,600 years have passed since the councils of Nicaea and Constantinople---yet evangelicals still debate how we are to understand the Trinity. In this scholarly work, Giles challenges the notion of "eternal economic subordination of the Son to the Father" and its application to today's controversy over gender roles and the subordination of women. 256 pages, softcover from Zondervan.

Publisher's Description

The doctrine of the Trinity is one of the cornerstones of Christianity. In Jesus and the Father, Kevin Giles wrestles with questions about the Trinity that are dividing the evangelical community: What is the error called "subordinationism"? Is the Son eternally subordinated to the Father in function? Are the Father and the Son divided or undivided in power and authority? Is the Father-Son-Spirit relationship ordered hierarchical or horizontal? How should the Father and the Son be differentiated to avoid the errors of modalism and subordinationism? What is the relationship between the so-called economic Trinity and the immanent Trinity? Does the Father-Son relationship in the Trinity prescribe male-female relationships in the home and the church? "Kevin Giles points out serious problems in the teaching that the Son is eternally subordinated to the Father and argues effectively for the full eternal equality within the Trinity. This book should be read by all who wrestle with the complex but crucial doctrine of the Trinity."—Millard Erickson, author, Christian Theology "By showing that subordinationism is a revival of a heresy that was systematically rejected by the non-Arian Church, the author reinstates the classical orthodox doctrine of the Trinity in all its scriptural majesty and grandeur."—Gilbert Bilezikian, professor emeritus, Wheaton College "Giles skillfully places before us the stark choice which each generation of theologians must face: will we allow the Bible to speak its message about the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to us, or will we use the Bible to advance our own agenda? This important book deserves to be widely read and carefully considered."—Paul D. Molnar, professor of systematic theology, St. John’s University

    I bought this book looking for a sound treatment of the Trinity; what I got was a book for egalitarian feminism in the church.Giles' biblical exegesis is non-existant, begging the question and making circular arguements. Giles' called Drs. Giesler and Grudem "heretics" for their positions on the Trinity.Giles argued against the Greek word "kefhale" as meaning "head," without offering any alternative meaning. He wrote that Kefhale in 1 Cor 11:3 cannot mean "head" in any of it's three uses in the one verse. The devistating self-confession of the book in the concluding chapter was that God is undivided in the "Immanent Trinity," but in the "Economic trinity" there is a subordination of roles; destroying his own arguement.

    Expanding on his earlier work, The Trinity and Subordinationism (IVP, 2002), Giles provides a thorough response to his critics with greater depth and insight. He makes his point strongly from biblical, theological, and historical grounds. If you read any book on the doctrine of the Trinity as it pertains to current debates, this is the one to read.
