Act and Being: Towards a Theology of the Divine Attributes
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungA stimulating new portrait of God. After two thousand years of discussion there seems to be little clarity about what God is. In Act and Being one of today's foremost Christian theologians explores the defining characteristics of deity. Bringing a unique combination of theology and philosophy to bear on this central question in Christian thought. Colin Gunton examines past attempts to unpack the nature of God and offers a new, intellectually stimulating portrait of the divine being. In the course of the book Gunton discusses the adequacy of theological language, compares the Greek and Hebrew views of divinity, and shows the difference that the concept of Trinity makes to our understanding of the divine attributes. The result is the most complete and coherent picture of God to be published in recent times. Scholarly yet accessible, Act and Being makes a major contribution to modern Christian thought.
