Product Description

Though perhaps on of the most widely known theologians of the twentieth century, Rudolph Bultmann is on of the least read or understood. His work presents a unique challenge to readers, not only because of his radical theological inquiry but also because of the way his ideas are worked out over time, primarily through short, occasional writings that present complex issues in a disarmingly straightforward manner.

In Rudolph Bultmann: A Companion to His Theology, David Congdon offers an introduction to Bultmann's theology, guiding readers through ten central themes ranging from eschatology and dialectic to freedom and advent. This understanding of his themes yields the necessary tools for students of Boltmann to grasp and profit from his writings. For those who are encountering Bultmann for the first time, as well as those who wonder how his work is relevant to our modern context, this guide forwards an accesible, cohesive and systematic presentation of Bultmann's theology.

Editorial Reviews

"With great clarity and insight, focusing on themes which lie at the very heart of Bultmann's theological project and placing him in conversation with recent and contemporary trends, David W. Congdon has written the best short introduction to Bultmann's thought. The point is not to 'return' to the great New Testament scholar and theologian--but neither should we bypass him."

—Christophe Chalamet, University of Geneva

"Who better than David Congdon to take us into the work of Christianity's greatest interpreter of Scripture in the modern period? With an expert's grasp of the entire architecture of Rudolf Bultmann's thought, Congdon leads the reader through its conceptual entry points. Here is a reliable primer, likely a classic, to guide both beginning students and well-schooled theologians away from the misconceptions, even myths, so often bedeviling treatments of Bultmann."

—James F. Kay, Princeton Theological Seminary

"In these pages, Bultmann stands before us as a difficult but compelling figure, a Christian thinker who took the eschatological vision of the New Testament as his charter and pursued its course with extraordinary tenacity and fearlessness. Congdon sets Bultmann's thought into critical discussion with contemporary theology, posing sharp challenges to our current preferences for ressourcement and the rule of faith. And he saves the best till last. The book ends with a superb meditation on Bultmann's Christmas sermons—a glimpse of Bultmann at his most attractive, or most seductive, depending on where you stand."

—Benjamin Myers, Charles Sturt University

"David Congdon's lucid and innovative treatment of Rudolf Bultmann is an excellent contribution to scholarship. Those eager to understand, appreciate, and, most importantly, learn from one of the most important (and, alas, most misunderstood) 'greats' of twentieth-century European theology have, in this book, an indispensable resource."

—Paul Dafydd Jones, Associate Professor, Department of Religious Studies, University of Virginia

"Being master of a subject matter as demanding as Rudolf Bultmann's theology and a master communicator, capable of introducing that subject-matter to beginning students in a manner both interesting and arresting (!) is rare. David Congdon has that rare combination of skills. This is a wonderful 'guide' to Bultmann's thought. Indeed, it is hard to imagine one more perfectly executed. It is a companion worthy of the thought of one of the real giants of twentieth century theology."

—Bruce McCormack, Charles Hodge Professor of Systematic Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary; author of Karl Barth's Critically Realistic Dialectical Theology (Clarendon Press) and Orthodox and Modern: Studies in the Theology of Karl Barth (Baker Academic)
