Product Description

Among the studies of Karl Barth's thought, no other work covers, as this one does, the areas of political, doctrinal, and ecumenical theology in single compass.

Written by leading Barth scholar George Hunsinger, Disruptive Grace is unique not only for its range of study, depth of insight, and accuracy of presentation, but also for the way it displays the heart as well as the mind of the great Swiss pastor and theologian.

Each of the book's three main sections consists of five major essays. Part 1 relates Barth to contemporary issues of social justice, war, and peace. Part 2 covers christology, pneumatology, the Trinity, scriptural interpretation, and the question of universal salvation. Part 3 discusses the Reformed tradition as Barth understood it in relation to Roman Catholicism, Lutheranism, modern liberalism, evangelical conservatism, and the postliberal theology of the contemporary Yale school. The book concludes with a meditation on the saving significance of Christ's death, a theme that runs throughout.

Publisher's Description

Among the studies of Karl Barth's thought, no other work covers, as this one does, the areas of political, doctrinal, and ecumenical theology in single compass. Written by a leading Barth scholar, Disruptive Grace is unique not only for its range of study, depth of insight, and accuracy of presentation, but also for the way it displays the heart as well as the mind of the great Swiss pastor and theologian. Each of the book's three main sections consists of five major essays. Part 1 relates Barth to contemporary issues of social justice, war, and peace. Part 2 covers christology, pneumatology, the Trinity, scriptural interpretation, and the question of universal salvation. Part 3 discusses the Reformed tradition as Barth understood it in relation to Roman Catholicism, Lutheranism, modern liberalism, evangelical conservatism, and the postliberal theology of the contemporary Yale school. The book concludes with a meditation on the saving significance of Christ's death, a theme that runs throughout the book. The result of more than twenty-five years of intensive Barth research, this volume provides scholars, teachers, and students with a thorough discussion of the twentieth century's most significant Christian thinker.

Editorial Reviews

The Journal of Religion
"These essays show a generosity of spirit, a breadth of knowledge, and a gentleness in the midst of discrimination and opposition that can only be admired. Theologians of many schools will learn and benefit from this fine, mature work, and look for more."
 
The Expository Times
"Hunsinger's great strength, besides his knowledge of the Barthian corpus, is the clarity of his writing and his ability to perceive and formulate theological distinctions."
 
Religious Studies Review
"Those readers familiar with the author's other published work on Barth will not be surprised by the high quality of these essays. . . This book is written with admirable clarity, and some essays could be fruitful in introductory courses on Barth."
 
Theology
"There is no doubt that this is an important book; it repays careful study."
 
Pro Ecclesia
"In an age when careless readings of other people's work are in vogue, this book offers refreshingly careful interpretations and analyses. Further, as much more than a collection of essays on Karl Barth, it offers a veritable catechism on major themes in Christian theology."
