The letters Rudolf Bultmann exchanged with the practical theologian Götz Harbsmeier as well as the church historian and later systematic theologian Ernst Wolf are an impressive witness to the writers' theological and personal fellowships. This volume combines the correspondences because both often converge content-wise and refer to one another.
The letters Rudolf Bultmann exchanged with the practical theologian Götz Harbsmeier as well as the church historian and later systematic theologian Ernst Wolf are an impressive witness to the writers' theological and personal fellowships. The joint accessibility of the correspondences in this one volume makes sense because both sets often converge content-wise and refer to one another. The result enables a multifarious and nuanced perception of topics which are not only of theological-historical significance, but also highly relevant to contemporary theology and today's church. The range of topics extends from the demythologisation debate to the question of guilt, church and society's fresh start post-1945, the relations between the Confessing Church and liberal Protestantism, and the problem of political activity within the church.
