Product Description

After two thousand years of theological discussion there seems to be little clarity about the kind of being that God is. Act and Being explores this topic with brilliance, offering a fresh, meaningful understanding of the defining characteristics of the deity. In discussing the attributes of God, Gunton brings a unique combination of theology and philosophy to bear on this central topic of Christian thought.

He first reviews past attempts to unpack the nature of God, showing how most fail as cogent, relevant teaching. He then outlines the facets of a new, intellectually stimulating, profoundly biblical portrait of the divine being. In the course of his book Gunton also discusses the adequacy of theological language, compares the Greek and Hebrew views of divinity, and shows the difference that the Trinity makes to our understanding of the divine attributes.

    Colin E. Gunton was, during the later part of the 20th Century and the beginning of the 21st Century, a breath of fresh theological air in a sometimes tepid atmosphere. The final published work of this British theologian, "Act and Being"(Wm.B. Eerdmans Publishing Co.), ties up, in an extremely tight package, his thoughts on the philosophical theology of the Divine attributes. This is must reading for any serious theological reader as is Gunton's 1992 Brampton Lectures (Cambridge University Press). if you are not acquainted with Gunton, you are in for a treat!!
