In this book one of the leading and most popular theologians of our time develops themes he first introduced in The Promise of Trinitarian Theology in 1992, a book which continues to be widely read and used as a textbook in Christian Doctrine throughout the world. Each essay addresses a topic of central importance in Trinitarian theology, ranging from the knowledge of God to the Christian sacraments. Together they reflect in particular on an increasing interest in the doctrine of the Holy Spirit and its bearing on the structure of the doctrine of the Trinity as well as on the other theological loci.
Made up almost entirely of previously unpublished material compiled shortly before Professor Gunton's death, this volume serves as a wide-ranging, vigorously argued collection. As is typical of Gunton's writing, this collection encompasses both practical and theoretical aspects of this doctrine central to the Christian faith.
