An Introduction to the Theology of Colin Gunton

I’ve just found out about a new book on Colin Gunton, which I believe has been published recently. Here’s the blurb:

Uche Anizor
Milton Keynes: Paternoster, 2016

This remarkable and intriguing work is the only single author and introductory treatment of Colin Gunton’s significant theology currently available, tracing the key theological themes, major contributions and continuing criticisms of his work. The book highlights throughout the Trinity and the concept of humanity and mediation as critical to understanding Gunton’s theology. A
chief aim of the book is to recommend Gunton to an evangelical audience, while providing a general introduction and overview to all who are unfamiliar with his work.

It seems that the ‘introduction’ part of the title needs to be taken seriously; those already familiar with Gunton’s work might not find much new here. But I’m sure I’ll still track down a copy.
