Author QuotedWerner Georg Kümmel
Title QuotedMan in the New Testament / trans. John J. Vincent
Date (Year/Month/Day)1963/12/16
Imprint[S.l.] : [s.n.]. 1963
QuotationThe great value of the Kümmel book is its affirmation, conclusively proven, that in the New Testament man's sin has nothing to do with his bodily existence. It is not that bodily life = sinful life and spiritual life or "sane lif" = good life. But that the whole man either accepts or rejects God.
