Haykin on the Trinity

This is a helpful clip of an interview by John Starke with church historian, Michael Haykin on the relationship of the persons of the Trinity in the thought of the Cappadocian Fathers and Augustine. Specifically he talks about the eternal generation of the Son, the procession of the Spirit and the idea of subordinationism in the understanding of these church fathers.

For the uninitiated, there are significant implications in the current debates over equality and distinction in the inter-Trinitarian relationships for understanding the roles that the Bible prescribes for men and women.

Michael Haykin hosts a very helpful site: The Andrew Fuller Center
