Intellectual history of the theologian Emil Brunner
Dr. McGrath is working on a major intellectual history of the leading Swiss Protestant theologian Emil Brunner (1889-1966), who has been neglected by theological scholarship for the last two decades. This study, to be published by Wiley-Blackwell in 2014, explores Brunner’s early relationship with the “dialectical theology” of Karl Barth, his development of his own distinct approach to the leading theological debates of the 1930s, and his mature theological vision. Particular attention will be paid to Brunner’s debate with Barth over the question of natural theology, and Brunner’s relevance to the life and thought of the church, especially in questions of practical theology.
