KIRKUS REVIEW

The theology of one of the most influential and controversial of older theologians of our time is examined here in a series of chapters by American, British, and German scholars. Bultmann himself contributes an introductory chapter of autobiographical reflections, and the editor offers an introduction to the main aspects and influences of Bultmann's thought. Among the contributors are D. G. Bornkamm, E. M. Good, H. P. Owen, Paul S. Minear, Schubert M. Ogden, John MacQuarrie, and others, and the whole range of Bultmann's theology and of its impact on various disciplines is treated. Bultmann himself then offers a concluding reply to the interpretations and criticisms presented by the contributors. The volume should be very serviceable to students of theology who wish to see Bultmann in respect to his strengths and weaknesses.
