If Bultmann's own scholarly output has been prodigious, the theological dialogue which he has engendered has been overwhelming. A paper of this scope could not begin to assimilate all of the relevant material. It will be our specific purpose in the next few pages to outline the principle features of Bultmann's mythical criticism--his call for demythologization and his existential interpretation of the kerygma. Also, we shall briefly investigate the directions in which Bultmann's thought has been developed by his leading followers. We shall conclude with some general observations concerning the function of myth in literature and the validity of mythical criticism for Biblical exegesis.
