Is the structure of the Trinity hierarchical? Does the Father have authority over the Son? Or are they co-equal in essence and being? Presenting a rigorous analysis, Erickson carefully examines the gradational-authority and equivalent-authority viewpoints; explores the biblical, historical, philosophical, and theological dimensions; and offers thoughtful insights on which position is truest to the gospel. 272 pages, softcover from Kregel.
In his most recent scholarly work, theologian Millard J. Erickson examines the various views concerning subordination within the Trinity and also looks at the discussion throughout the history of the church. In addition to providing rigorous theological analysis of the subject, Erickson exposes flaws in familial implications derived from the Trinity. This increasingly debated topic has finally received a thorough, careful, and objective treatment in Who's Tampering with the Trinity.
