The unique character of Rudolf Bultmann's thought has been missed by many traditional studies that cast him in exegetical or hermeneutic frameworks. His methods of source criticism and his concept of 'demythologizing'have led some to reject his thought in toto, otherstolabel him as a subjectivist. Tim Labron steps out of such traditional studies by reading Bultmann as a unique scholar and leading to the keys that unlockthe distinct character of Bultmann's thought, namely, John 1,14 and the principle of justification by faith.Bultmann uses them in aparallel function - to burn the traditional subject-object hierarchies and self-made foundationsto the ground. Labron shows the implications this hadfor theology, religious studies and philosophy.

'Only a fewyears ago taking a degree in Christian origins or Protestant Christian theologywould have included at least some acquaintance with Rudolf Bultmann. ButBultmann's writings, like Eliade's in the field of comparative religion, arenow more often criticized or simply ignored. Dr. Labron, while not overlookingthe problems with Bultmann's work, insists here on its perennial value forscholars in general and Christians in particular. He considers Bultmann's keypoint to be succinctly expressed in

'"Wittgenstein and Theology "is a courageous statement in an age when few theologians are able or willing to undertake such original and broad examinations of traditional and contemporary questions. Labron has produced a work which will be of interest to both Wittgenstein specialists and to those who are more generally interested in the relationship between modern philosophy and theology in the Christian tradition.' - David Goodill OP, Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford, UK. --Sanford Lakoff
