There are theologians and then there are theologians like Colin Gunton. His work on the doctrine of the Trinity and doctrine of Creation have helped people understand and grasp their meaning and importance. Colin was one of a group of theologians who helped reestablish theology on a trinitarian basis and do theology from trinitarian perspective. In short, he took the doctrine of the trinity seriously.
Colin E. Gunton was Professor of Christian Doctrine at King's College London from 1984 until his sudden death in 2003.
This is the first in a series of entries of Colin's work which I'm planning. I hope to explore some of his major themes and writings.
