Overview

This book is the first introduction in any language to the work of Eberhard Jüngel, who increasingly is recognised as one of the leading contemporary Protestant German theologians.

Some initial evaluations of Jüngel's theology are offered in the light of other current traditions of theology and philosophy, both English and German.
