Product Description

How does modern science respond to the “obsolete” language of Scripture? Bultmann’s lifelong task as a devout Lutheran was to “demythologize” the Bible’s message so people could hear the Christian gospel and respond authentically. He expands on the form criticism of Hermann Gunkel and Martin Dibelius.

About the Makers of the Modern Theological Mind series
Who are the thinkers that have shaped Christian theology in our time? This series tries to answer that question by providing a reliable guide to the ideas of the men who have significantly charted the theological seas of our century. Each major theologian is examined carefully and critically—his life, his theological method, his most germinal ideas, his weaknesses as a thinker, his place in the theological spectrum, and his chief contribution to the climate of theology today.
