Overview

This study, based on the Bampton Lectures delivered in the University of Oxford in 1992, examines what is often called the crisis of modernity, with reference not only to modernity but to modern culture in general. Problems of social, theological, and philosophical thought are traced back beyond the Enlightenment to the very roots of Western Christian theology. A response to these problems is essayed by constructively developing conceptual possibilities to be found in ancient and modern theology of the Trinity.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"By suggesting that many of the ills of modernity reflect the displacement of God, Colin Gunton helps us to see our problem in a new light. Anyone concerned with theology and with its relation to the modern predicament must read The One, the Three and the Many." Stanley Hauerwas

"[Gunton's] work merits wide and careful consideration. His study is meticulously structured, replete with signposts that enhance its readability as well as sturdily conveying his vigorous and thoroughly theological intellectual program." Nancy A. Dallavalle, Theological Studies
