reviewed by S. M. Hutchens

It has been my habit for some years now, upon opening a comprehensive theological treatise, particularly one that purports to come from Reformed quarters, to turn first to its section on Trinitarian theology to see what is being said about the relations between the Persons of the Godhead. I expect to find one of two things: leveling inspired by egalitarian ideology, or, among those with a more orthodox bent, Calvin’s and Augustine’s reticence, haunted by the shades of Arian subordinationism, to say much on the subject—a reluctance of which the revisionists take full advantage in their attempt to present themselves as representatives of a historical consensus.
