Product Description

THE MAKING OF MODERN THEOLOGY. Ranked by many among the great theologians of church history, Karl Barth was the lead ing European theologian in the first half of this century. His 1919 ROMANS signaled the end of 19th century liberal theology, and his CHURCH DOGMATICS reconstructed Christian doctrine in a way that was both classical and modern. A champion of freedom of the Christian community, Barth's the ology links "the Bible and the newspaper," Chrsitian doctrine with the ethical issues of politics and economics, justice and peace. This volume concentrates on the key texts and ideas in Barth's thought. It presents the essentials Barth for stu dents and the general reader. Clifford Green's introductory essay and comments on the selected texts set Barth in his historical context, chart the development of his thought and indicate the significance of his theology in the development of Christian theology as a whole. Substantial selections from Barth's work illustrate key themes: Barth's critique of liberal theology The ROMANS commentary and the Anselm study Revelation and biblical theology versus natural theology Christology, election, creation, reconciliation, the church Christian ethics; the church and public life Socialism; resistance to Nazism; the church as a peacemaker Clifford Green is Professor of Theology and Ethics at Hartford Seminary abd Director of its Public Policy Center.
