Theology of Oswald Bayer


Oswald Bayer is one of the most important German Lutheran theologians within the last half century. In contrast to mediating or secularizing theologies which reduce theology either to a comprehensive morality (Kant) or a philosophical “system” (Hegel) or religious motivation (Schleiermacher or Feuerbach) Bayer affirms theology as both experiential and sapiential, both informing and returning to worship life, as the “grammar of the language of the Holy Spirit.” He understands the gospel as able to relieve modern humans of the overwhelming responsibilities that they place upon themselves to create an ideal world. His legacy results in a vibrant Lutheran response to various ecumenical engagements, worship life and preaching, and articulating Christian doctrine. Through a close reading of Bayer’s most important theological texts, we will seek to access where and how his theology should influence contemporary theology and ecclesial policies.
