A classic study now available in English

First appearing in 1885, Schlatter’s Der Glaube im Neuen Testament (Faith in the New Testament) is a thorough analysis of the concept of faith. Taking into account Old Testament, rabbinic, and key first-century writings, Schlatter provides an exhaustive study on the meaning and implications of faith in the New Testament. It is a philological masterpiece, making its translation into English a great contribution to New Testament theological studies. This fresh translation of Faith in the New Testament retains the substance and style of his original work, giving a new audience direct access to Schlatter’s work. Schlatter’s rigorous thought remains invaluable today.

The German original, Der Glaube im Neuen Testament, is also available on pre-pub.

Praise for Faith in the New Testament

[Faith in the New Testament] does not merely shed light on the modern debate; it makes a vital contribution in its own right, both on an academic and a devotional level.

—Andreas J. Köstenberger, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

An old treasure has been brought forth from the great storehouse of German scholarship and piety that English readers can now peruse, ponder, and enjoy.

—Douglas A. Campbell, Duke Divinity School

Longarino lets us hear for ourselves the rekindling and active power of Schlatter’s Word of faith.

–A. Andrew Das, Elmhurst University

Adolf Schlatter (1852–1938) was a conservative Lutheran theologian, a lecturer at Berne, and professor of New Testament and systematic theology at Greifswald University and Tübingen. One of the most prolific New Testament scholars of the twentieth century, Schlatter produced more than 400 separate scholarly articles on the New Testament. He was educated at Oxford. Scholar Robert Morgan noted that Schlatter “is perhaps the only ‘conservative’ New Testament scholar since [Johann Albrecht] Bengel who can be rated in the same class as [F. C.] Baur, [William] Wrede, [Wilhelm] Bousset, and [Rudolph] Bultmann.” Schlatter actively opposed the proliferation of theological liberalism in Germany stemming from Enlightenment rationalism, speaking often at conferences and in churches in support of traditional Protestant theology, and was influential on Dietrich Bonhoeffer. His many works include Faith in the New Testament, The Letter of James, and The Letter to the Galatians.

    It seems to be a very good book, but unfortunately Logos haven’t tagged the countless Greek and Hebrew words that literally form the basis of all the author’s arguments…as a result unless one has mastery of those languages, this book is essentially of no value. Regrettably I had to return it for a refund. This is a Logos publication, so I’m truly at loss as to why they’d fail to do such a basic editorial job of tagging this book to the Hebrew and Greek lemmas!
