Brown, John. The Sufferings and Glories of the Messiah. Byron Center, Michigan: Sovereign Grace Publishers, 1970 reprint. This out-of-print volume is worth its weight in pure gold.

The now famous professor of theology in Zurich, the late Bruner was a leading voice of European neoorthodoxy in the first half of this century.
