Summary
Brannon Ellis investigates the various Reformation and post-Reformation responses to Calvin's affirmation of the Son's aseity (or essential self-existence), a significant episode in the history of theology that is often ignored or misunderstood.
Contents

  • 3. The theological shape of the Autothean debates: eternal generation's role in classical trinitarianism
  • 4. Identity, distinction, or tension in trinitarian language?: 'loose' approaches to the Son's aseity
  • 5. Tension to distinction: classical and mainstream reformed approaches to the Son's aseity
  • 6. The irreducible triunity of God: the reformed minority report's strict distinction of the two ways of speaking
  • 7. Of himself, God gives himself.
