Overview

Chapman has written a compelling case study of a distinctive theological theme—the eschatological interpretation of the historical Jesus in Edwardian England—where he attempts to add greater precision to the history of theology in a neglected period. Looking at the impact of Adolf Harnack, Alfred Loisy, Albert Schweitzer and Johannes Weiss on biblical studies and theology before the First World War, Chapman argues that the future course of theology, in which eschatology plays a crucial role, was already mapped out at this time. Assessing the work of William Sanday, F.C. Burkitt and George Tyrrell, Chapman examines the theological diplomacy between Britain, France and Germany and uncovers a cultural crisis that made eschatology such an appealing study.
