Bultmann's Theology of the New Testament is a major event in the history of biblical scholarship.... It is the culmination of his lifelong work as an interpreter of the New Testament. The work qualifies as a classic in the history of New Testament studies. --Nils Dahl, Yale University
The most significant work of its genre in the twentieth century, Theology of the New Testament is essential for understanding the history and future of biblical theology. The reprint, brilliantly introduced by Robert Morgan, makes available again this stimulating and challenging work. --William Baird, Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University
Bultmann's Theology remains a classic, deserving to be read for its stunning clarity and especially its brilliant exposition of Paul's theology. One need not agree with all of Bultmann's conclusions to profit from this legendary master's knowledge of the New Testament and its context. --Donald A. Hagner, George Eldon Ladd Professor of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary
