In this thought-provoking book, one of England's most distinguished theologians, Colin Gunton, engages with Barth, Calvin, Coleridge, Dale, Forsyth, Irving, Jungel, Luther, Newman, Niebuhr, Owen, Zizioulas, to illuminate some of the central questions of theology. Professor Gunton begins by exploring the nature of Christian theology and the doctrine of God, then discusses such major subjects as christology, pneumatology, atonement, creation, and the church. Invaluable to all scholars and students of systematic theology and Christian doctrine.

"One of the most distinctive and powerful voices in British theology... For more than 30 years of prolific writing and inspirational teaching at King's College London, he pioneered a vision of classical Christian theology as a credible intellectual discipline which, far from needing to accommodate itself to modern fashions of thought, provided the resources needed to criticise them." All in all, a challenging and thought-provoking book, providing insight into the development of one of Britain s most distinguished systematic theologians. It is to be commended. --A. T. B. McGowan, Highland Theological Institute "Scottish Bulletin Of Evangelical Theology " 'All in all, a challenging and thought-provoking book, providing insight into the development of one of Britian's most distinguished systematic theologians. It is to be commended.' A. T. B. McGowan, Highland Theological Institute, Scottish Bulletin of Evangelical Theology
