Rudolf Bultmann is one of the most original and influential theologians of the twentieth century. Drawing on the work of Heidegger among others, Bultmann developed a distinctive form of hermeneutic theology which remains a fundamental reference point in current theological and philosophical debates.

This book is a major new contribution to the contemporary reappraisal of the Bultmann legacy. By examining in detail Heidegger's influence on Bultmann, Gareth Jones is able to offer an original interpretation of Bultmann's theology as a phenomenological and hermeneutic enterprise, rather than as a nebulous kind of existentialism. Moreover, by following through the subsequent reception of Bultmann's thought, Jones is able to draw out the significance of Bultmann's thought for modern hermeneutic theology, while avoiding the pitfalls into which other commentators have fallen.

Bultmann is both a major addition to Bultmann scholarship and an original contribution to on-going debate in theology. It will be of particular interest to students and scholars of theology and of modern European thought.

Christology - the question of the historical Jesus; the human question; through phenomenology of faith; the hermeneutic heritage; the critical reception.
