Colin Gunton's introduction to the Christian Faith is a very approachable book for those who wish to think about systematic theology. He organizes the book in the same way that Friedrich Schleiermacher did with his book under the same name, as a discussion of the Christian creed and the Trinitarian faith we've inherited. Yet where Schleiermacher talked about only the experience of God, Gunton is able to talk about the creator God who reveals himself to humanity as Father, Son, and Spirit. Sadly, Gunton was never able to write such a work. But in the end, Gunton's commitment to the Triune God trumps all other theological allegiances, making his work truly a confession of Christian faith.
Though this book is a pretty good systematic theology overview revolving around the theme of the Trinity it is difficult at times to read. Though classical in its positioning, Gunton provides a very moderate evangelical perspective on standard systematic theology topics. In fact, a conservative evangelical will consider Gunton "soft," while a liberal theologian will consider his views outdated
