It is difficult to overestimate the singularity of Rudolf Bultmann. Bultmann's Theology of the New Testament changed the course of New Testament interpretation and has continued to influence the field until today. As ambitious in scope as it is consistent in method, Bultmann's volume asks and provides answers to the big questions. Bultmann also found a way to wed a sober-minded commitment to historical reconstruction to his deep desire for the New Testament to speak to contemporary humans.

"The most significant work of its genre in the twentieth century, Theology of the New Testament is essential for understanding the history and future of biblical theology. This reprint, brilliantly introduced by Robert Morgan, makes available again this stimulating and challenging work."

--William Baird, Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University

"Bultmann's Theology of the New Testament is a major event in the history of biblical scholarship. . . . It is the culmination of his lifelong work as an interpreter of the New Testament. . . . The work qualifies as a classic in the history of New Testament studies." 

--Nils Dahl, Yale University

"Bultmann's Theology remains a classic, deserving to be read for its stunning clarity and especially its brilliant exposition of Paul's theology. One need not agree with all of Bultmann's conclusions to profit from this legendary master's knowledge of the New Testament and its context."

--Donald A. Hagner, George Eldon Ladd Professor of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary

Rudolf Bultmann studied at Tübingen, Berlin and Marburg. In 1912, he began his teaching career at Marburg and remained there, except for five years, until his retirement in 1951.
