Product Description

For many, Karl Barth's break with liberalism is the most important event that has occurred in theology in over 200 years. This book shows how Barth read the Bible before and after his break with liberalism, how he came to read the Bible differently than most of his contemporaries, and why Barth's contribution is still significant today.

As Richard Burnett shows, the crux of Barth's legacy is his abandonment of the hermeneutical tradition of Schleiermacher. Burnett gets to the root of Barth's break from this tradition, and he explores the new set of principles that Barth developed for properly reading scripture.

This is a crucial piece of scholarship. Not only is it the first major book in English on Barth's hermeneutics, but it also employs pioneering research in Barth studies. Burnett includes in his discussion new and important material only recently discovered in Switzerland and made available here in English for the first time: six preface drafts that Barth wrote for his famous Romans commentary, which some regard as the greatest theological work of all time.
