Overview

Colin Gunton is regarded by many as one of the most important English theologians of the twentieth century. A prolific writer and creative thinker, Gunton taught at King's College, London, for over thirty years, until his untimely death in 2003. In this first single-authored introduction to Gunton's theology, Uche Anizor traces the key theological themes, major contributors, and criticisms of his work. Each chapter provides a synthesis and overview of Gunton's thought on a particular doctrine or set of doctrines, calling attention to the Trinitarian shape of his theology. In Trinity and Humanity, Anizor provides a handy entree into the corpus of this major thinker.

""Colin Gunton helped shape contemporary theology by inspiring and shaping many young scholars. He did this by his passion as much as he did it by his methodology and dogmatic conclusions. In this welcome survey of Gunton's theology, Uche Anizor attentively captures not only the content, but also the energy behind Gunton's work. Even when Gunton falls short, and he does at times, there remains so much to learn from him. Thankfully, Anizor's volume will help us not forget the mark this joyful and yet restless theologian left.""
Kelly M. Kapic, Professor of Theological Studies, Covenant College, USA

""Trinity and Humanity is an important theological resource as the author discusses the full range of Gunton's thought extending from the Trinity to creation, reason and revelation, ecclesiology, Christology, atonement, Pneumatology and more, while carefully providing his own very helpful and insightful critical responses. Whether one agrees or disagrees with Colin Gunton or does a little of both, one certainly will learn a great deal from this book.""
