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.
