This book is the first full study of the whole of Hans Frei’s work, from his doctoral thesis on Karl Barth in the 1950s to his great unfinished project on the history of modern theology in the 1980s. Higton draws on a wide range of unpublished material in the Frei archives to present a comprehensive, fresh and original interpretation of Frei’s theology. He places Frei’s well-known work on biblical hermeneutics firmly in the context of his theological wrestling with Barth and of the dominant traditions of Western Protestant theology.
