Some cool news from the folks at Eerdmans.


In this book Ernst Käsemann — celebrated initiator of the twentieth-century “New Quest of the Historical Jesus” — examines the problem of the relationship between discipleship and faith. These twenty-eight previously untranslated lectures and sermons delivered between 1975 and 1996 show a side of Käsemann not revealed so clearly in his more famous theological publications.

Käsemann carefully analyzes specific Bible passages and New Testament themes, using them to speak to the realities of his (and our!) modern world, in which the majority of people live in a hell effectively created and sustained by the unjust greed of the white race. He is personal, provocative, and even combative throughout. A fascinating “Theological Review,” written by Käsemann at age 90, is reprinted in the front matter.
