A Free Corrector: Colin Gunton and the Legacy of Augustine (Minneapolis: Fortress, 2015)

The published version of my doctoral thesis, A Free Corrector evaluates the work of the twentieth century British theologian, Colin Gunton, and his controversial treatment of Augustine’s theological legacy.

While others have critiqued Gunton’s negative reading of Augustine, my book goes further in addressing Gunton’s argument regarding Augustine’s “afterlife” (that is, the appropriation of Augustine by crucial figures from the medieval era to the dawn of modern thought).
