The Coming Crisis

Full Product Description

This book presents a case study of the cultural crisis in Edwardian England that made Albert Schweitzer's eschatological interpretation of the historical Jesus such an appealing idea in biblical studies and theology. This book presents a case study of one distinctive theological theme - the eschatological interpetation of the historical Jesus in Edwardian England - as an attempt to add greater precision to the history of theology in a neglected period. Looking at the impact of Adolf Harnack, Alfred Loisy, Albert Schweitzer and Johannes Weiss on biblical studies and theology before the First World War, Chapman argues that the future course of theology, in which eschatology played such a crucial role, was already mapped at this time. Assessing the work of William Sanday F.C. Burkitt and George Tyrrell, Chapman looks at the theological diplomacy between Britain, France and Germany and uncovers a cultural crisis that made eschatology such an appealing idea.

The Coming Crisis by Mark Chapman was published by Continuum in July 2001. The ISBN for The Coming Crisis is 9781841271859.
