The »Dogma of the Christian Faith,« written by Gerhard Ebeling a third of a century ago, very quickly proved to be a classic. Eberhard Jüngel immediately hailed the work as »creating a consensus.« It has in fact remained a significant reference text for dogmatic theology up to the present time. This new fourth edition contains an afterword by Albrecht Beutel which with its remarks on the origins, form and reception of this dogma restore the timeliness of this classic work.
The »Dogma of the Christian Faith,« written by Gerhard Ebeling a third of a century ago, very quickly proved to be a classic. Eberhard Jüngel immediately hailed the work as »creating a consensus.« It has in fact remained a significant reference text for dogmatic theology up to the present time. Such a superiority over time may also be due to the fact that Ebeling intentionally dispensed with entering into explicit discussions with the theological styles which were predominant at that time but which faded quickly. Instead of this he offered his readers the possibility of accompanying him on the path of a concentrated, meditative affirmation of the overall context of the Christian experience of faith. This new fourth edition contains an afterword by Albrecht Beutel which with its remarks on the origins, form and reception of this dogma restore the timeliness of this classic work.
