Eberhard Jüngel and Existence: Being Before the Cross (Transcending Boundaries in Philosophy and Theology) By Deborah Casewell Cover Image


This book interrogates the contemporary Lutheran theologian Eberhard J ngel's theological anthropology, arguing that J ngel's thought can provide a model for theological engagement with philosophical accounts of existence. Focusing on J ngel's theology of existence, the author explores the thought of philosophers, including Heidegger and Hegel, their influence on and application to his theology, and argues that J ngel's account of humanity should be seen as a response to atheistic existentialist accounts of existence.

In showing how J ngel's theology is informed by and dependent on philosophical thought, this book provides a new lens on the interplay between philosophy, theology, and religion in twentieth-century German thought. It will be of particular interest to researchers in philosophy, theology, and philosophy of religion.
