What Difference Does the Trinity Make for Social Ethics? Affirming and Moving Beyond Recent Criticisms - A Paper Read at the 2016 ETS Conference by Dr. Paul Louis Metzger

Intro by Derrick Peterson

What difference does it make that we believe in the Trinity as Christians? While there has been a lot of pushback on so-called "social models" of the Trinity, the Trinity 'is not a separate puzzle to be solved but the framework within which all theology's puzzles are to be solved' as Robert Jenson rightly put it several years ago now. Our Director Dr. Paul Louis Metzger presented a paper on just this topic at the recent 2016 Evangelical Theological Society conference, and we have the recording of the session for you. Enjoy!
