Colin Gunton's unpublished Systematic Theology

Before he died Colin Gunton was working on the first volume of a projected 4-volume systematic theology. It would have been a crowning achievement to his theological career and one of few English systematic theologies. It appears this first volume (which had largely been written in draft) is finally to be published, edited by Robert Jenson and Paul Braizer and published by T & T Clark. Date on Amazon says November 2012, but nothing yet on T & T Clark website.

That is great news.

Greetings! I have an odd question--I'm working on a research project (which will hopefully be published), and I came a across something John Milbank wrote (in Radical Orthodoxy and the Reformed Tradition) regarding Colin Gunton's linkage of John Calvin with Eastern Orthodoxy (this on pg. 31 of the book). I don't know Gunton very well, and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. (Milbank does not provide any source for his statement).

By the way: happy to discuss further and send actual quote from Milbank ...



This is great news indeed for me too. I'm doing my PhD on Gunton, particularly the relations between Trinity and human personhood/identity. Hopefully the volume will come out so I can include it in my research.

I don't know if I can enlighten you Gregory, but if I get to see the quote maybe I can at least give a try.

I'm happy to discuss further too, of course.
