Abstract

it, neither Luther nor Calvin wrote com­ Che Guevara still warn us that the world's mentaries on it, and Luther even went so poor have heard the message of Dien- far as to express the wish that it did not bienphu. Today's Christians easily move exist. Nor is it a favorite book with many from the premise that Jesus was not a Christians today. Yet, if only because it revolutionist to the conclusion that he also does exist and is included in our Bibles, was not a revolutionary. That is not good commentaries on it will always be Hengel's conclusion. Hengel has been in demand. Gerleman has undertaken to bold enough to shed the false protection provide us with such a work, and in these of purely academic writing. He raises the two fascicles has given us a worthy, and right questions. It remains for him to highly interesting, addition to the com­ spell out in connection with the politics mentary literature. of deterrency in contemporary Germany and the North Atlantic community the In the first 45 pages the various intro­ nature of Christian responsibility. ductory problems relating to the book are discussed.
