15 years ago today Colin Gunton died.
Many were eagerly awaiting his systematic theology, volume one was in draft.
It would have been the culmination of a long study of scripture and the tradition.
He left a legacy in books and students, (although in my opinion, sadly not at King's College London where he spent all his years teaching)
He was one of a very few non-conformist theologians to become a Professor.
He made us all think about theology, especially the doctrine of the Trinity, even if you ended up disagreeing with him.
I sat in his lectures each year while I was undergraduate - introducing Christian theology, the theology of Karl Barth and in my third year some of the sessions of the Research Institute in Systematic Theology as he read draft chapters from his systematic theology.
His books which fill a shelve in my study remain key volumes I pick up and read.
It is good to see a growing number of books engaging with his work,
and there is a promised T & T Clark Companion in preparation.
