Eberhard Jüngel Reading Room

This page is designed to help make writings on and by Eberhard Jüngel (b. 1934) available to those without easy access to a theological library. Most links connect you to scanned, published books and articles made available by Google Books (often 75% of content). Importantly, Google Books allows you to search within a volume and also across volumes (rather than across the entire WWW). The Google Book Project also makes hard to find and expensive monographs readily accessible to researchers. This Reading Room collects those relevant materials on one page.
NB: For bibliographic management and notetaking while reading, Zotero is highly recommended ("a free, easy-to-use Mozilla Firefox extension to help you collect, manage, and cite your research sources"). For page snapshots and printing of Google Book pages, try Microsoft's snipping tool (paste text into Word -- or Zotero).

My Background

  • In 1988-89 I had the privilege of studying with Eberhard Jüngel in Tübingen. The next year I began my doctoral studies in Toronto with Dr. John Webster. During that time I translated a volume of essays: Eberhard Jüngel, Theological Essays II (Trans. A. Neufeldt-Fast and J. B. Webster. Edited by J. B. Webster. Edinburgh: T & T Clark, 1995). For my doctoral dissertation on Jüngel`s work--written under John Webster`s supervision--I received the Governor General`s Gold Medal in 1996 (University of St. Michael`s College, Toronto School of Theology). I hope to renew this research track in the next year and make more of those materials available at this site. -neufeldt-fast [at] tyndale [dot] ca (Arnold Neufeldt-Fast), Ph.D.
