Investigate the “demythologization” controversy that rocked the theological world in the middle of the twentieth century. In 1941, Rudolph Bultman proposed that historic and theological claims in Scripture should be separated. According to Bultmann and others, the New Testament writers held to certain supernatural beliefs that were no longer plausible. In this monograph, Ian Henderson presents the contours of Bultmann’s argument and his detractors’ rebuttals. He avoids taking a position, allowing readers to draw their own conclusions.
