The Young Bultmann

In this episode of Christ the Center the panel interviews Dr. William Dennison, professor of interdisciplinary studies at Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, GA, about his recent publication The Young Bultmann. Bultmann was at one time the most influential New Testament scholars of the western world. He is perhaps best known for his hermeneutic of demythologization. Questions of influences on Rudolf Bultmann come in for discussion (Neo-Kantian or Heidiggerian) as well as Bultmann’s relationship to Freiderich D. E. Schleiermacher and Karl Barth. Listeners interested in how presuppositional apologetics is brought to bear in understanding a major figure in NT studies will benefit from this discussion.
