The Future of our Religious Past, The Festschrift produced to celebrate Rudolf Bultmann's eightieth birthday, contained articles by an international team of distinguished scholars relating to all the major areas in which Dr Bultmann has worked, and made a volume of over eight hundred pages. It was clearly impossible to make the whole of this tribute available in English, but the present book contains a selection of articles of particular interest to the English-speaking world. Contributors include, in the section discussing exegetical questions : Nils Dahl on Qumran, Werner Kummel on Jesus and Eschatology, Ernst Kasemann on Atonement, James M. Robinson on Q, Gunther Bornkamm on Matt. 28.16-20 and Hans Conzelmann on the origin of the Johannine Logos. Those writing on theology and philosophy include : Gerhard Ebeling on 'Time and the Word', Ernst Fuchs on Hermeneutics, Friedrich Gogarten on the task of theology and Martin Heidegger on Leibniz.
