35 editions published between 1985 and 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

A reissue of a brilliant and accessible introduction to Trinitarian thought. Colin Gunton argues that the theology of the Trinity has profound implications for all dimensions of human life. Central to his work is his argument that the doctrine should offer ways of articulating the being of God and of the world so that we may be better able to live before God and with each other
The actuality of atonement : a study of metaphor, rationality, and the Christian tradition by Colin E Gunton( Book )

31 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a reissue of a masterly examination of both the Christian doctrine of Atonement and the nature and working of theological language, Professor Gunton reassesses the doctrine and the language in which it is expressed in the light of modern scholarly developments. He explains how the traditional metaphors of Atonement, drawn from the battlefield, the altar and the law courts, all express something of the meaning of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus-and examines their bearing on human life in today''s world
Yesterday & today : a study of continuities in christology by Colin E Gunton( Book )

12 editions published between 1983 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

13 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Christian faith : an introduction to Christian doctrine by Colin E Gunton( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This wide-ranging volume is a condensation of the author's lifetime of study and thought about the Christian faith. Broad in scope, the book deliberately follows the pattern of Schleiermacher's great nineteenth-century work, Dogmatics. Professor Gunton, however, uses a different method and approach and ends with a far more robust treatment of the objective existence of the eternally triune God." "This concise statement of the contents of Christian teaching will prove invaluable to students of introductory theology, as well as anyone interested in the central claim of the Christian faith to be true."--BOOK JACKET
A brief theology of revelation : the 1993 Warfield Lectures by Colin E Gunton( Book )

22 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an important study for all those interested in questions about revelation and the nature of Christian theology. The late Professor Gunton asks in this work whether there is more to be said for the notion of Christianity as a 'revealed religion' than some of the more simplified treatments allow. He analyses the concept of revelation, illustrating its importance for understanding even beyond religious purposes. He contends that natural theology and natural revelation are distinct categories and examines why they are so often confused. Revelation is considered in relation to scripture and tradition, and the nature of inspiration. In conclusion he provides an outline of a complete, modern theology of revelation
