German New Testament scholar. An outspoken pastor, he was imprisoned briefly by the Nazis, 1937. He went on to become a professor from 1946, influencing a generation of pastors with his fierce theological and political passion.

He was a professor in Mainz, 1946, Gottingen, 1951 and then to Tubingen, 1959 until his retirement in 1971. Attacked by both conservative churchmen and scholarly circles in the '50s and '60s for his radical criticism and views. While influencing many, he still became somewhat isolated as a result.

He wrote the masterpiece, "Commentary On Romans," 1973, a monument of theological interpretation. He died on February 14, 1998 in Teubingen, Germany, age 91.
