Product Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

"Colin Gunton's fine exposition of the central Christian doctrinesfollows a traditional trinitarian and credal sequence. It providesan orientation which is Scriptural and classical yet alsopositioned within modern debate. The fruit of many years teachingand writing, this text promises to be widely used and appreciatedby students of theology today" David Fergusson, University ofEdinburgh

"Here is a dogmatics in outline from a contemporary master ofthe discipline. Trinitarian in shape, biblical in its vision of theChristian gospel, catholic in scope, this is a lively, engaging andprovocative exposition of Christian teaching which will delightlearners and teachers alike.' John Webster, University ofOxford

"The Christian Faith is not only a catechetical resource,ideal for the classroom, but it is also his "dogmatics in outline",a tentative plan for his long awaited magnum opus. I commend thisbook to every teacher, and every student." Reviews in Religionand Theology

"This is a deeply impressive summation of prolonged work indoctrinal (systematic) theology." Times LiterarySupplement

"Colin summarizes a lifetime of theologicalreflection in an introductory survey of Christian beliefs...Thevirtues are significant: a command of the history of theology thatenables Gunton to draw as needed on the insights of the earlychurch, the Reformers, and Barth in particular; writing that isalways clear and often elegant; and common sense that avoids fadsand extremes." The IRT Bulletin

"...provides a systematic and accessible overview" Journal ofContemporary Religion

"Laypersons, students, pastors, and theologians alike will findthis volume an expansive, insightful, and inspiring guide to thedeep themes of Christian faith, remarkably integrated into acoherent and winsome theological vision." The Princeton SeminaryBulletin

"Gunton pulls together an elegant and powerful systematicaccount of the Christian faith which is dominated at both a macroand micro level by the Trinity and a rich feast it is too."Richard Briggs, St John's College, Durham
