About the Authors
  • This book is the first introduction in any language to the work of Eberhard Jüngel, who increasingly is recognised as one of the leading contemporary Protestant German theologians. It furnishes a comprehensive survey of his work as New Testament scholar, systematic theologian and philosopher, focusing particularly on his discussions of theological and religious language, the role of Christology, the doctrines of God and man, and questions of natural theology. Some initial evaluations of Jüngel's theology are offered in the light of other current traditions of theology and philosophy, both English and German.

    • A book which, in hardback, has had glowing reviews from all quarters. Described by the Journal of the American Academy of Religion as a 'brilliant achievement'
    • Eberhard Jüngel is a contemporary German theologian of supreme importance, whose doctrinal thought is of interest to large numbers of educated Christians
    • An ideal and handy introduction to Jüngel's thought for undergraduate students - the only one available, apart from a sketchy chapter in Alister McGrath's The Making of Modern German Christology (Blackwell, 1986)

    "The book is a brilliant achievement" Journal of the American Academy of Religion

    "This pioneering venture by J.B. Webster into the thought of Eberhard JÜngel will certainly still be consulted when other books on this considerable theologian have been written...An admirably lucid account of the link between JÜngel's interest in the function of language, especially metaphor, and his theology of revelation through the Word of God." Classical Review
