Postcards from Palookaville

When the Spin posted the first of Liam’s articles a few weeks ago, somebody asked me how I thought things would develop. Based on past experience of such things, I predicted behind-the-scenes shenanigans to shut down the discussion; relentless criticisms of 'tone' pitched in a '...
One of the really encouraging things about the debate of the last few weeks is the number of Christians who have contacted various of us involved, wanting to know more about the classical, orthodox doctrine of the Trinity. Over at his blog , Mark Jones has published a useful annotated bibliography...

Kyle Claunch has offered some thoughtful reflections on my use of his words in the current Trinitarian debate and indeed on the discussion as a whole. I will not comment on his post in detail but there is one question which he raises to which I will offer a very brief answer: Can we not (and should...

UPDATE: Professor Denny Burk (with whom I have always previously enjoyed a cordial relationship and who is a brother in Christ, whatever our disagreements on this issue) has contacted me to offer to delete the relevant Twitter discussion and to assure me that he in no way meant to call into...
I am delighted (We are not worthy!) to be able to publish the following guest post from my friend and mentor, John Calvin, as a rejoinder to those who think 1Cor. 11:3 is a knockdown argument for eternal submission and its relevance to understanding male-female relations. He also asked me to warn...
Wayne Grudem -- with whom I do share a cordial personal relationship (politics and now Nicene issues aside) -- has weighed in on the issue of the day. Again, I am grateful for the measured but firm response. To respond: I accuse no-one of rejecting the Nicene Creed of 325 , as he states (at least...
