At 7 p.m., Oct. 9 in the chapel at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS) in Deerfield, Illinois, USA (a bit too far for me to visit in person!), there is to be an interesting debate held.
Defending the non-subordination view
Tom McCall, Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology at TEDS
Keith Yandel, Professor of Philosophy University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Representing the Complementarian position which affirms that a structure of authority and submission will exist for eternity in the Godhead.
These two are well-known across the evangelical world on the gender issue.
Suzanne goes on to describe 5 positions on the trinity - very interesting. It makes me realise that perhaps I should not attribute the word 'subordinationist' to Grudem but the lengthier: 'someone who affirms that a structure of authority and submission will exist for eternity in the Godhead.'
We have heard from Jane at the college where it takes place and she says this:
I work at Trinity, so thanks for the shoutout from across the pond (I'm a Brit myself; married an American, happens to the best of us.)
The debate is taking place at the Carl F.H. Henry Center for Theological Understanding on the Trinity campus. They usually show their debates via streaming video or similar, so do check out the Henry Center site and watch it from the UK!
