Adolf Schlatter: New Testament Theology
With the publication of Schlatter’s New Testament Theology, the question arises how Schlatter’s work was received when it first appeared in print over eighty years ago. A look at the historical reception of Schlatter’s two-volume New Testament Theology will prove to be instructive. After a brief biographical sketch, this article will survey reviewer criticism, sketch Schlatter’s or his defenders’ responses to these criticisms, evaluate this dialogue, and summarize positive reviews. Some final observations conclude the essay.
