A superb evaluation of the ills of modernity with a masterful handling of philosophical and theological concepts. This book is full of insight and wisdom on a number of important thinkers, topics and intellectual epochs. The first part of the book deals with the problems of universality, particularity, relationality, meaning and truth in modern (and late modern) thought. The second part of the book is an excellent introduction to Trinitarian theology and it offers impressive and thought-provoking solutions to the myriad of issues identified in Part 1.

As a point of critique, I do not share Gunton's hostility towards Plato and Augustine, as I think they are (in some respects) more faithful to biblical theology than the likes of Irenaeus (who Gunton overrates). I also think contemporary Trinitarian theology is a bit overblown to the point of distorting Christian doctrine and I was pleased to see some acknowledgement of its limitations in the introduction.. But this is a minor theological digression and should not dissuade readers of this review from buying the book.
