The Case for Ernst Lohmeyer

ByJ W Rogerson

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Ernst Lohmeyer is one of the heroes of twentieth century New Testament scholarship. His remarkable life and thought deserve to be far more widely known in the English-speaking world. But even those who have heard about his witness in the face of Nazism and his murder by Soviet secret police are often barely acquainted with his critical and creative contributions to the study of the New Testament and Christian origins. John Rogerson has therefore done us a tremendous service. Bringing his renowned knowledge of German biblical scholarship to bear, Rogerson clarifies the philosophical and literary influences on Lohmeyer’s thought before taking us on an illuminating tour through the major untranslated writings. This reveals how a combination of historical, literary and theological interests shaped Lohmeyer’s analysis of a broad range of issues and texts and produced insights that are often ahead of their time. Prof. Andrew T. Lincoln
