Abstract:

"Karl Barth has been called the most important Protestant theologian since Schleiermacher. A lifetime of work produced a huge and complex body of writings that emerged from both his theological teaching and from his engagement in Church life. The posthumous publication of previously unknown works by Barth has invited fresh interpretations of his thought." "This book draws together these readings to provide a clear and authoritative introduction to the main themes in Barth's theology. It shows the continuity and coherence of Barth's work and stresses the importance of his biblical and ethical writings alongside his systematic theology. In conclusion it focuses on Barth's response to modernity, postmodernity and the tasks of theology, presenting him as an outstanding resource for constructive theology in our age."--Back cover.
