William Lane Craig – (Neo) Apollinarianism (5)

According to nominalism, “being” – that which is common or universal in any given category – is no more than a “name,” a concept or term. Accordingly, the doctrine of the Trinity in this philosophy leads to tritheism. Excessive realism, on the other hand, associates the word “essence” with some subsistent thing that stands behind [...]

My move [...]

Review of “Evangelical, Sacramental, & Pentecostal” by Gordon Smith (Downers Grove: InterVarsity Press, 2017)

The Gospel would be preached, the sacraments would be properly administered, and church discipline would be justly executed.

I was recently forwarded a copy of the newest entry in Zondervan’s New Studies in Dogmatics series. The Triune God by Fred Sanders is an important contribution to the study of Trinitarian theology that couldn’t have come at better time. Sanders lays out in the introduction to this volume, the idea that most Trinitarian studies [...]
