Round of 16: Gunton vs. Zizioulas



Colin Gunton (1941-2003) was arguably the most important British theologian of his generation, and contributed to the areas of the doctrines of Creation and the Trinity. His prolific writing was cut short by an early death.

Metropolitan John (Zizioulas) of Pergamon is one of the most well-known orthodox theologians today. He has been active in the ecumenical dialogues, and have especially emphasized the importance of ecology in the Church. His most famous work is Being as Communion.

Gunton and Zizioulas being drawn together is unfortunate because their theologies are so similar in places - in my opinion both deserve to go through, but my vote has gone with gunton

Well, they certainly look a lot like each other.

Let's just advance Colin Zizioulas or John Gunton, then.

Gunton's thought takes what is valuable in Zizioulas and nuances it. Got to go Gunton.
