Book Description

Publication Date: November 20, 2012

[Rudolf Bultmann was the giant of twentieth-century New Testament scholarship. His pioneering studies in biblical criticism shaped research on the composition of the gospels, and his call for demythologizing biblical language sparked debate among Christian theologians worldwide.This definitive biography now in English for the first time traces his career in Germany through the tumult of two world wars. Through richly drawn connections between events in his life and his theology, Hammann illuminates Bultmann s contributions to biblical historical criticism and the changing role of religion in public life in Europe.]

Editorial Reviews

Rudolf Bultmann … is widely regarded as one of the three or four Protestant theologians of the twentieth century whose impact on Christian witness and theology promises to be lasting. The value of Konrad Hammann s fine biography is the extent to which it illumines the life and work of this extraordinary human being. –Schubert M. Ogden, University Distinguished Professor of Theology Emeritus at Southern Methodist University

In this outstanding book one encounters not only the history of a problem, namely the compatibility of historical enlightenment and religious beliefs, but also the story of a personality. The biography of Konrad Hammann is thus a prime example of a successful history of ideas. –Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
