Quote for the Day: Bultmann’s Isolationism

“Bultmann’s existentialism directly related God to nothing at all in the world at large, which is why his audience was made up entirely of theologians and church members. Bultmann ended up proclaiming an isolated world, a world isolated from both Nature and culture, isolated from everything save the church. But there is no future in that. Without vestigia Dei in mundo there is no Deus.” (Dale Allison, The Luminous Dusk, pp 17-18)

  1. Is “vistiga Dei in mondo” supposed to be Latin? or Pidgin-Spanish? or am I missing something? I would have expected “vestigia Dei in mundo.”
