Eberhard Jüngel's Bibliography of Works Published in English

Today is important for a few reasons. I started my job at Special Collections today, which mostly involved an extended tour of the library's collections (which are incredible, I might add). But today is also important for another reason. I have finally acquired every single one of Jüngel's writings that are available in English. The missing pieces were two journal articles only available on microfilm, but a little time in the library today solved that problem. Of course, the number of Jüngel's writings in English is only a fraction of his entire corpus, so the achievement is not all that impressive compared to a collection of almost any other theologian. But it was the sheer obscurity of some of these writings which made them difficult to find. For those of you who may be interested in doing research on Jüngel, or for those who simply wish to read some excellent theology (and by excellent, I mean some of the best theology ever written), I have provided a bibliography of his works in English. If I am, by chance, missing an article, please -- by all means -- let me know.
