Gerhard Ebeling (1912–2001) had a decisive influence on German Protestant theology after 1945. Based on comprehensive source material the author presents a theological portrait of a man who was able to make his life and his work synonymous in an unusual manner which has made his influence endure up to the present time.
Gerhard Ebeling (1912–2001) had a decisive influence on German Protestant theology after 1945. As a leading Luther researcher, hermeneuticist, dogmatist and fundamental theologian, and in addition as an influential organizer in the field of theology and the entire university, he determined the shape and elements of practical theological reflections for many decades. Based on comprehensive source material, a considerable part of which was kept in private archives, the author presents a theological portrait of a man who was able to make his life and his work synonymous in an unusual manner which has made his influence endure up to the present time. This remarkable biography reveals Ebeling's connections to recent theological and contemporary history and at the same time points out the groundwork which is still important for present-day Protestant theology and the Protestant church.
