Gunton on the Christian Gospel

From ‘The Promise of Trinitarian Theology’ by Colin Gunton

…there has for long been a tendency to treat the doctrine (of the Trinity) as a problem rather than as encapsulating the heart of the Christian Gospel.  It is as if one had to establish one’s Christian orthodoxy by facing a series of mathematical and logical difficulties rather than by glorifying in the being of a God whose reality as a communion of persons is the basis of a rational universe in which personal life may take shape.
