Pray for my worried and mortal soul. I've been sprinkling myself in water soaked in Tom Wright's Jesus and the Victory of God all day, yet still I want to read more Bultmann.

only the holiest of waters for you eh. Great Bultmann post BTW. It is always worth pondering our hermeneutical frameworks, I dare say we don't do it often enough as evangelicals.
I randomly bought my first Bultmann book today for a Euro: "History and Eschatology". I'm going back today to get Barth's two volumes on Versöhnung for 8 Euros. Unfortunately, they're in German, in Barthian German, which means incomprehensible!

I wonder what Jim West is slipping into those warm bowls of water he's been bringing you.
I have yet to register a final opinion on Bultmann. This is only natural, since I draw all of my conclusions from Chick tracts, and they have yet to discuss this issue. BTW, do you happen to know if Bultmann was King James Only? And another question I wonder is if he listened to Contemporary Christian Music; however this is not as important an issue as his choice in English Bible translations.
Johnathan,That is a good question. I don't think in practice Bultmann was a KJV 1611 olny, but in spirit he surely was. I reckon he only read the KJV, to be honest - perhaps the Luther when he was tired. Never the Greek. As to his musical taste, I believe he liked slightly rock orientated christian music - with cymbals and tambourines, and that involve "we like dancing like this" sort of lyrics.

I am New Testament Tutor at St Mellitus College and St Paul's Theological Centre, London. I'm also a Visiting Lecturer at King's College London. Less well known is that I am also the original writer of the now famous song “Beans, beans, good for your heart…”, and inventor of the “you must have fallen out of the stupid/ugly tree” repertoire of insults. I am the main proponent of the Human Faecal Matter for Brains Opening in chess (actually not what I wanted to call my brilliant and original opening Knight manoeuvre 1.Na3, 2.Nc1), and I also claim to have independently discovered the haiku™ poetry form (© Copyright Chris Tilling 2007) without any help from the Japs. My blog, Chrisendom, is primarily occupied with biblical and theological themes – especially those Apostle Paul shaped, but I try as best as I can to squeeze in a decent amount of inappropriate baloney on the way.
