"Barth and the evangelicals have a complicated history, punctuated by periodic attempts to define the relationship. This carefully edited set of essays is the most rigorous, informed, and programmatic intervention so far. It illuminates old fights (Van Til's critique), explores new territory (the emergent church movement, Radical Orthodoxy), and above all defines the doctrinal loci where the interests of evangelical theology and the legacy of Barth intersect."
Fred Sanders
-Biola University

All too often evangelicals have reduced their treatment of Karl Barth's theology to trying to figure out if he is a 'good guy' or a 'bad guy.' In this volume, taking a different path, we find serious and nuanced engagement with BarthÂ’s theology, a learned appreciation of his historical location, and a real willingness both to critique and to learn from him. The publication of this book will be hugely helpful for students of twentieth-century theology.
