About the Author
Keith S. Whitfield is assistant professor of theology and vice president for academic administration at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC.
"This is a much needed book by Southern Baptists on how to be trinitarian and what are the implications of the Trinity for human relationships. This is a robust conversation among leading Southern Baptist theologians on whether there is any eternal submission/subordination between the divine persons and to what extent husband and wife are an analogy for trinitarian relations. A must read for anyone interested in trinitarian theology and what it means to call a doctrine 'biblical.'"

--Mike Bird, academic dean and lecturer in theology, Ridley College

"This little volume offers readers a window into an important ongoing conversation in evangelical life about the doctrine of the Trinity and its implications for human relationships and gender debates. Here, readers will find helpful insights from exegesis, tradition, and theological method, as well as a healthy, God-honoring model for navigating our theological disagreements. Highly recommended."

--Rhyne Putman, associate professor of theology and culture, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary

"The doctrine of the Trinity has gained a position of prominence in evangelical theology over the past few years largely due to (often heated) debates surrounding the eternal relations of the Father and the Son. While debates are rarely pleasant, they are often necessary, especially when doctrines of supreme importance are at stake. The present volume contains clear and up to date chapters by Bruce Ware, Malcolm Yarnell, Matthew Emerson, and Luke Stamps that represent various views of the Trinity held among Southern Baptist theologians today, along with an introduction and conclusion by Keith Whitfield that ably maps the issues at stake. With discussions marked by charity, as well as incisive analysis and critique, contributors debate issues such as the eternal functional subordination of the Son, the nature of the God-human relationship, and theological method, making this volume useful for a broad evangelical readership. My prayer is that it will serve not only Southern Baptists but also all confessional Protestants in retrieving and renewing our confession of faith in the blessed Trinity, who alone is worthy of our praise."

--Scott Swain, president and James Woodrow Hassell Professor of Systematic Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary
