The Critical Review of Theological and Philosophical Literature, Vol. 12 (Classic Reprint) Book Description:
Excerpt from The Critical Review of Theological and Philosophical Literature, Vol. 12 At last there is provided what has been a desideratum for years - a really reliable translation of the great dogmatic work on Justification by which the most noted of modern theologians chiefly made his mark on the thinking of his age. "Ritschl" and "Anti-Ritschl" have been long bandied about as watchwords of controversy, but the English reader has hitherto had a difficulty in getting to close quarters with the man whose thoughts have been the occasion of so much stir. "Ritschlian Theology" is a term made to cover a great deal more than Ritschl's own contributions to theological system; yet, while books like Kaftan's Truth of the Christian Religion Herrmann's Communion with God, Harnack's History of Dogma, supposed to represent Ritschlianism, have been translated, there has always been a shrinking - due, it may be presumed, to the ponderous and involved nature of Ritschl's style - from grappling with the master himself. The courageous translators who undertook the task of rendering Ritschl's dogmatic tome into lucid and readable English were certainly not to be envied in their work. It is all the more to their credit that the difficulties of their enterprise have been so successfully overcome, and that we are at length in possession of a translation which, in point of accuracy, clearness, and frequently even felicity of expression, is nearly all that the most exacting could desire.
