One too many "nots"? Unless they really did say he could be ignored...


I've heard that Gunton's reading of Augustine is off-base. do you find that to be true? I haven't read much Gunton.

Thanks John.

T.Y this is often the criticism directed at Gunton. Jenson discusses this in his chapter. He says Gunton probably went too far in his polemic, but was generally right. A new book from Lewis Ayres on Augustine and the Trinity (Cambridge, 2010) will off another reading. As Jenson says if you read everything Augustine wrote if doctrine of the Trinity is not so problematic, but it does get away from the fact that in significant places, it is, or at least for Gunton and Jenson.
