The Christian Theology in Context series aims to provide students and general readers, as well as academics, with a collection of well researched yet accessible books on the most important theologians and theological movements of the Christian church from the apostolic period to the present day. The volumes will be unique in setting theological thought in this full social, historical, and political context. Each will attempt to show the close relationship between knowledge and social pratice, rationality and cultural location.
Karl Barth (1886-1968) is widely acknowledged as the greatest theologian of the twentieth century and is shown in this book to be a profoundly political thinker. Though he wrote more than any other twentieth century theologian, he was also fully engaged in social and political ideas. Dr. Timothy Gorringe explores this wealth of material and shows how it is related to the events of the twentieth century.
