Gunton on the Defects of Modernity

516NiFyEEqL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_[1]“…An account of relationality that gives due weight to both one and many, to both particular and universal, to both otherness and relation, is to be derived from the one place where they can satisfactorily be based, a conception of God who is both one and Three, whose being consists in a relationality that derives from the otherness-in-relation of Father, Son and Spirit.”

Colin Gunton, The One, the Three and the Many: God, Creation and the Culture of Modernity (Cambridge/New York: Cambridge University Press, 1993), 6–7.
