This volume offers an up-to-date introduction to Eberhard Jungel's intellectual formation, publications and influence. Jungel is one of the most original and influential Protestant theologians to emerge after Karl Barth, and his theology has received fresh interest of late from systematic theologians, biblical scholars and historians of modern Christian thought. R. David Nelson guides the reader through the figures, movements and conceptual developments in the background of Jungel's thought. By introducing Jungel's four major monographs and eleven of his key essays, Nelson is able to assess a number of themes prominent in Jungel's theology, and to summarize the achievements, challenges, and prospects of his theological contribution. This comprehensive introduction will help the inquisitive student to engage with Jungel's thought.
