Publisher's Description

This book details the development and contours of Karl Barth's robust and lively vision of Christian and ecclesial life in the early years of his career.
In this remarkable work Michael O'Neil investigates Karl Barth's theology in the turbulent and dynamic years of his nascent career, between 1915 and 1922. It focuses on the manner in which this great theologian construed Christian and ecclesial existence. The author argues that Karl Barth developed his theology with an explicit ecclesial and ethical motive in a deliberate attempt to shape the ethical life of the church in the troublesome context within which he lived and worked. O'Neil adopts a chronological and exegetical reading of Barth's work from the initial dispute with his liberal heritage (c.1915) until the publication of the second edition of his commentary on romans. Not only does this work contribute to a broader understanding of Barth's theology both in its early development, and with regard to his ecclesiology and ethics, it also provides a significant framework and material for contemporary ecclesial reflection on Christian identity and mission.

Author Bio

MICHAEL O'NEIL was appointed as Head of Christian Thought and Director of Vose Research at the end of 2009. He has many years of pastoral experience, most recently as Team Leader at Lesmurdie Baptist Church (5 years). His doctoral work was in the early theology of Karl Barth ("Forming Moral Community: Christian and Ecclesial Existence in the theology of Karl Barth, 1915-1922"). His present research activity includes examining the theology of justification, Baptist theology and heritage, and aspects of theological method. Michael is deeply committed to the work of the local church in its mission to proclaim Jesus Christ and to shape the lives of God's people as his disciples. Michael is married to Monica and together they have three fabulous adult children.
