Description

An important collection of essays, including many hitherto unpublished studies. Professor Colin Gunton examines and illuminates a broad range of theological issues, including the nature of dogma and Christian knowledge claims; holiness and virtue; salvation according to Calvin and the doctrine of election; and freedom in the gospel. Mature reflections on some of the central questions in theology, this book will be essential reading for all scholars and students of systematic theology and Christian doctrine - and of modern theology in general. Colin Gunton was Professor of Christian Doctrine at King's College, London.
