Talk by Ian Henderson
Professor of Systematic Theology in the University of Glasgow
In this talk Professor Henderson reviews the first volume of Rudolf Bultmann's ' Theology of the New Testament,' recently published in English. There has been much speculation as to whether Buhmann's work on the New Testament, which proved so helpful to German chaplains during the Second World War, is in effect a revival of the old liberalism of fifty years ago, and the appearance in English of his major work will help many people to decade this question. Professor Henderson, who has already written a book with the title of this talk, maintains that Bultmann has gone considerably beyond the position of the liberals in his interpretation of the myth in which the New Testament message is enshrined.
by Arnold Toynbee
4-The Far East
In this talk Professor Toynbee speaks about the way in which Far Eastern peoples have reacted to different presentations of Western civilisation in different ages. In his view it was easier for them to accept a strange Western technology tn the nineteenth and twentieth centuries than to accept a strange Western religion in the sixteenth ceotury.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
