The first thirty-five pages show PENCIL UNDERLINING and one of those pages also shows HI-LIGHTING. Else, Very Good+ in Very Good+ DJ: Both book and DJ show indications of very careful use. The Book shows just a touch of wear to extremities; some faint smudging to the outside edges of the text block; the binding is square and secure. The DJ shows only lifght wear to the extremities and the mildest rubbing; unclipped; mylar-protected. Overall, remains a flawed copy, but one that is structurally sound and tightly bound and showing only light wear. Would make a handsome reading copy. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. Large, Heavy 8vo. xiv, 744 pages. First Edition USA ; Sixth Printing. Hardback with DJ. First Edition USA ; Sixth Printing. N° de réf. du libraire 46600
Synopsis : "As the first volume in the Johannine Monograph Series, The Gospel of John: A Commentary by Rudolf Bultmann well deserves this place of pride. Indeed, this provocative commentary is arguably the most important New Testament monograph in the twentieth century, perhaps second only to The Quest of the Historical Jesus by Albert Schweitzer. In contrasting Bultmann's and Schweitzer's paradigms, however, we find that Bultmann's is far more technically argued and original, commanding hegemony among other early-Christianity paradigms. Ernst Haenchen has described Bultmann's commentary as a giant oak tree in whose shade nothing could grow, and indeed, this reference accurately describes its dominance among Continental Protestant scholarship over the course of several decades. ""Rudolf Bultmann was unquestionably the most outstanding New Testament scholar of the twentieth century, and his commentary on John was probably his most outstanding achievement. Although no one now shares his conviction that the Gospel was built largely upon a gnostic source, his penetrating intelligence is in evidence on every page of this great commentary, which may never be surpassed."" --John Ashton, Emeritus Fellow, Wolfson College, Oxford University, UK ""Although Bultmann's literary hypothesis now fails to convince many scholars, his view that a form of Jewish gnosticism, evidenced in some of the texts from Qumran, provides an illuminating context for the interpretation of the creative theological response of the evangelist. Above all other aspects, Bultmann's theological interpretation remains impressive and relevant, and justifies the judgment of Irenaeus and others, that this Gospel provides a compelling response to challenges to the meaning of the gospel."" --John Painter, Professor of Theology, Charles Sturt University, Australia Rudolf Bultmann was for many years Professor of New Testament at the University of Marburg, Germany. He previously held this position at the Universities of Breslau and Giessen. He was a graduate of the Universities of Tubingen, Berlin, and Marburg."
