Product Description

Evangelicalism has had many and varied reactions to Karl Barth's theology. Arguably the most important theologian since John Calvin, Evangelicals often react to Barth with praise, admiration, but also with skepticism, hostility, and fear. This book contains a series of essays that seek to, as the title says engage Barth's theology from a critical, yet open, Evangelical perspective. A number of theological issues important to Evangelicals are covered including, covenant theology, election, doctrine of Scripture, the atonement, and ecclesiology. As John Webster states, Evangelical reception of Barth takes a step forward in this well-informed collection."

Publisher's Description

This volume aims to engage with Karl Barth's questions and answers on a range of topics vital to Christian theology. Specifically, whether by going beyond, behind or against Barth, the chapters presented here attempt to provide a contemporary orientation to certain aspects of Barth's theology that can be deemed problematic from the standpoint of historic, confessional evangelicalism. Why engage with Barth? And why the particular approach of this book?
The answer to the first question is that Barth's significance as arguably the greatest theologian of the twentieth century - increasingly being recognized in an ongoing renaissance of international Barth scholarship - means that Barth provides both opportunity and challenge for evangelicalism. There is
renewed interest in the question of how evangelicals should or should not appropriate Barth. Given the sheer diversity within worldwide evangelicalism, a consensus is unlikely to be reached. Be that as it may, in a range of areas, evangelical theology stands to gain from careful and critical listening to what Barth has to say.
