The doctrine of the divine absolutes is a central component of university courses in modern Christian doctrine and in this book Gunton brings a unique combination of theology and philosophy to bear on the main issues. This book addresses the thorny question of the defining characteristics of the deity - or what God is. After 2000 years there is little clarity about this, and it is this clarity which Gunton provides. He discusses the nature of theological language, the difference the Trinity makes to discussion of the divine absolutes, and the relationship between Greek and Hebrew understandings of the topic. The most coherent picture of the divine absolutes to have been published in recent times, this should be useful reading for all serious students of Christian doctrine and systematic theology.
