Justification : the heart of the Christian faith : a theological study with an ecumenical purpose by Eberhard Jüngel( )

49 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new work, precipitated by the Lutheran-Roman Catholic Joint Declaration on the doctrine of justification, represents Eberhard Jungel's most sustained theological writing for some time. Jungel examines the role of justification in Christian faith - and emphasises its central importance." "He traces the history of the concept of 'justice' in Greek thought, and of the Old Testament parallel concept 'righteousness'."--Jacket
The doctrine of the Trinity : God's being is in becoming by Eberhard Jüngel( Book )

28 editions published between 1965 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Starting with an analysis of the close relation of Trinity and Revelation in Barth, Jungel then looks at Barth's account of divine objectivity in relation to human subjectivity. He concludes with a discussion of the ontological implications of God's self-manifestation at the Cross." "Throughout the book, the formation and development of Jungel's own theology is illuminated." "John Webster has provided an entirely new translation of Gottes Sein ist im Werden, incorporating additional material from the third German edition, together with an introduction."--Jacket

God as the mystery of the world : on the foundation of the theology of the crucified one in the dispute between theism and atheism by Eberhard Jüngel( Book )

42 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jüngel sets out to establish a basis for a theology of God the crucified while avoiding the shoals of theism and atheism. He warns of the danger, rooted in the fact that modernity no longer dares to think God, of talking God to death, of silencing God with too much God-talk. Jüngel analyzes what our possibilities are of thinking and speaking God and concludes that theology has to become the narrative of God's humanity. This second book in the series helps the reader to gain a more explicit awareness of the contemporary issues Jüngel's theology grapples with

Christ, justice and peace : toward a theology of the state in dialogue with the Barmen Declaration by Eberhard Jüngel( Book )

22 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and German and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eberhard Jüngel is one of the world's most creative Christian thinkers. This is his first explicit examination of the relationship between theology and politics, between the church and state or, as he himself puts it, of 'the political existence of the Christian'. This examination takes the form of a critical theological analysis of the Barmen Theological Declaration -- the courageous statement of faith produced in Germany in 1934 in the face of the rise of National Socialism. Jüngel explores in particular the fifth thesis, which concerns the state's God-given responsibility to safeguard justice and peace. One of the significant characteristics of this book is its concern to integrate the serious, academic commitment of theology in the service of truth with its necessary existential relationship to the pulpit. Without a coherent grasp of this the church degenerates into a 'characterless club for the cultivation of religion' while academic theology is reduced to a form of spineless irrelevance which shirks its responsibilities to the real world. Jüngel's concern is to offer a theology in which rigorous theological commitment and the spiritual life of the church are integrated. This refreshing book makes significant contributions to the debate concerning the question of natural theology and divine decree, the Lutheran doctrine of the two regiments (kingdoms), the theological grounds of human rights, the ethics of the use of force by the state, the implications for just war theory of the nuclear capability and a whole range of other vital contemporary issues

Theological essays by Eberhard Jüngel( Book )

10 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eberhard Jüngel is widely recognised as one of the most important and original theologians of the twentieth-century. Although his essays comprise some of his best critical and constructive writing, few have been available in English. These eight essays have been carefully chosen to illustrate the wide range of Jüngel's current concerns - the ontological implications of the doctrine of justification, the nature of metaphorical and anthropomorphic language, theological anthropology, Christology and ecclesiology, and natural theology

What is theology? by Rudolf Bultmann( Book )

10 editions published between 1984 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 1926 to 1936 Rudolf Bultmann offered an introductory course in theology, the so-called theological encyclopedia, which he continually revised and refined. The work, finally published posthumously, shows the early, combative Bultmann struggling with inherited tradition and critical of Schleiermacher, Brunner, and Troeltsch. Yet it also presents "as useful a prolegomenon to his principal works as anything he subsequently offered," says translator Roy A. Harrisville, and discusses fully the relationship of biblical interpretation and systematic theology
