Product Description

The second edition of John Webster's masterly Karl Barth offers an insightful introduction into the thought of the twentieth century's greatest theologian.

Barth's lifetime of work, of which his revolutionary Epistle to the Romans and hislandmark Church Dogmatics were only a part, is a massive, complex, and still largely unstudied body of writings. The posthumous publication of much of his work has invited fresh and attentive interpretations of his thought, as his fuller body of work continues to contextualize and nuance Barth's theology.

This book draws together the primary concepts in Barth's work to provide a clear and authoritative introduction to the main themes of Barth's theology. The closing chapter, with its focus on Barth's relationship to modernity, postmodernity, and the tasks of theology will be especially useful to students.

Publisher's Description

Karl Barth (1886-1968) 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 publication of some of his work posthumously has invited fresh and attentive 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. In an accessible way, it shows the continuity and coherence of Barth's work and stresses the importance of his biblical and ethical writings alongside his systematic theology. The book 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.

    Rev. John D. White
    Webster, now at King's College, the University of Aberdeen, offers here his detailed introduction to Karl Barth and his theology. Webster is to be congratulated for writing a very clear expose on Karl Barth. While there is not a great deal that is new here, Webster has presented his material, on which he is obviously an expert, in a very clear and enviable fashion. For someone just beginning to read Barth and wanting to know more about him, Webster has produced a very readable book. Barth's theology is beautifully laid out for the interested reader. This book belongs in the library of anyone interested in Karl Barth. A good read from a great theologian and writer.
