I'm not alone

I've come across an excellent blog from a postdoctoral student in Australia who enjoys the theology of Eberhard Jüngel just as much as I do. He has a series of posts on Jüngel, including his own lists of books about and by Jüngel. Click here for my own bibliography (updated recently) of Jüngel's published works in English.

Yeah, Ben's blog is great. In fact, it was his posts that encouraged me to read Jüngel in the first place. By the way, I'm jealous of your extensive collection of Jüngel's works. It's a shame that he's so hard to find in the U.S.
It's a great shame indeed. What's even sadder is how few scholars pay attention to his work. Moltmann and Pannenberg receive such extensive analysis and regular treatments that it only makes the silence about Jüngel all the more appalling. It seems like Jüngel just does not fit what people want in a Lutheran theologian today. Either you are in Forde's camp, as is Mark Mattes, and thus Jüngel is too modern (read: too indebted to Barth and Hegel), or you are in Jenson's camp, in which Jüngel is simply not ecumenical enough in the way Jenson defines ecumenism (read: departing from classical Lutheranism in order to build bridges at the expense of theological clarity).
