This book is the first introduction in any language to the work of Eberhard Jungel, 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 Jungel's theology are offered in the light of other current traditions of theology and philosophy, both English and German.show more

Review quote

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