All meaningful action is metaphorical, and these metaphors give the cross' narrative its meaning. Gunton's most influential work was on the doctrines of Creation and the Trinity.

Simply put: Christians need to think. Both about theology and about the world around them. I think mature Christians will be blessed by much of this book and be able to sort through some of those areas where they may disagree

Lewis, McGrath states that this book is about "mere theology," meaning that he seeks to covers basic themes that have been believed and passed down through the ages in the church. The Passionate Intellect contains 11 chapters which are based on previous lectures/addresses from 2007-2009. I think mature Christians will be blessed by much of this book and be able to sort through some of those areas where they may disagree. There is some great stuff in this book, it just could have been better and more focused on the discipleship of the mind.

An important collection, including many hitherto unpublished studies.

Professor Colin Gunton discusses for example 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.
