Product Description

Commanding Grace: Studies in Karl Barth's Ethics is a unique collaboration of contemporary theologians dedicated to studying Barth's ethics. Examining issues that Barth addressed at length, and that are of critical contemporary import, this groups of essays bears on topics as the moral significance of Jesus Christ, the Christian as ethical agent, just war theory, the relationship between doctrines of the atonement and modern penal justice systems, the virtues and limits of democracy, and the difference between an economy of competition and possession and an economy of grace.

Edited by leading contemporary theologian Daniel Migliore, this book promises to help us understand the complex connections between Barth's theology and its ethical implications.

Editorial Reviews

“Karl Barth’s rich and commanding thought on the ethics of the gospel calls for theological scholarship of a high order. This splendid collection has it in thirteen stellar essays on the ethics of war, democracy, punishment, economics, freedom, and other topics in Barth’s thought.”
— Gary Dorrien
Columbia University

“This authoritative collection is a notable addition to the rediscovery of Barth’s ethical thought. The essayists know Barth well, take him seriously as a moral theologian, and offer their readers well-articulated judgments.”
— John Webster
King’s College, Aberdeen
