An important collection of essays, including many hitherto unpublished studies.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.
"'As we have come to expect from Gunton, this is academic theology that makes demands on the reader, but it is written from a clear commitment of faith and a pastoral heart, the warmth of which reaches us in every chapter.'- Church Times; 'Intellect and Action has something of the feel of a masterclass: following a well-versed thinker through his reflections on major issues as they were put by major thinkers.'-The Heythrop Journal"
