Product Description

For the Sake of the World gathers the presentations from one of the most successful Barth conferences ever held in the United States. Here twelve of Karl Barth's most astute interpreters explore in fresh ways a variety of themes from Barth's life and work, showing why the thought of Barth still has much to offer the contemporary world. Organized as a dialogue between the contributors, this volume features cutting-edge studies of Barthian themes, which are each followed by substantial critical responses. The subjects discussed in detail include the Barth-Brunner correspondence, Barth's position on the Jews during the Hilter era, Barth on freedom and humanity, Barth's doctrine of providence, Barth's thought in relation to Christian love and ethics, and Barth's conception of eternity. The volume ends with a winsome memoir on "Barth as a Teacher" by John Godsey.

Editorial Reviews

Paul Louis Metzger
"This collection of essays and responses by leading interpreters of Karl Barth reveals keen insights into his writing, life, and teaching, as well as foresight concerning his significance for issues facing the church today. The depth, complexities, and vitality of Barth's work come alive in these pages. For the Sake of the World will be welcomed by all students of this great twentieth-century theologian and by those concerned with doing theology in the new millennium."

William C. Placher
"Thirty-five years after Karl Barth's death, it seems that we are just beginning to give his theology the sort of detailed analysis it deserves and richly repays. These essays offer an outstanding model of the kind of work that needs doing. They give readers a deeper understanding not only of Barth but also of how to do theology."
