Product Description

Barth is one of those monumental thinkers who is more often admired than read. Dealing a death blow to 19th-century liberalism, he re-established the Bible and the life of Christ as the heart of modern-day Protestantism. In Karl Barth: An Introductory Biography for Evangelicals, Mark Galli takes readers on a whirlwind look at the life and writings of this influential theologian. While only focusing on a fraction of the theological thoughts and perspectives that Barth has to offer, Galli shows how Barth’s theology can be read and reshaped by one’s own views to broaden one’s understanding of Christ. Galli argues that Barth’s breakthrough thinking is vital for evangelicals to reckon with even today.

Publisher's Description

 
This refreshingly accessible introduction to Karl Barth by Mark Galli takes readers on a whirlwind tour of the life and writings of this giant of twentieth-century theology. Galli pays special attention to themes and topics of concern for contemporary evangelicals, who may need Barth’s acute critique as much as early-twentieth-century liberals did—and for surprisingly similar reasons.

Author Bio

Mark Galli is editor in chief at Christianity Today and the author of many books, including Jesus Mean and Wild: The Unexpected Love of an Untamable God; Beyond Bells and Smells: The Wonder and Power of Christian Liturgy; and Beautiful Orthodoxy: The Goodness, Truth, and Beauty of Life in Christ.

Editorial Reviews

William H. Willimon
— author of Conversations with Barth on Preaching
"Karl Barth, greatest theologian of the modern age, has had a mixed reception from evangelicals. Mark Galli here gives all of us the introduction to Barth that we’ve needed. This book is a wonderful contribution to both a better understanding of Karl Barth and a more fully evangelical practice of the Christian faith."

Fleming Rutledge
— author of The Crucifixion: Understanding the Death of Jesus Christ
"A gracious, appealing portrait of Barth’s life and thought."

Kevin J. Vanhoozer
— Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"Mark Galli wisely chooses to focus on two areas of interest (and continuing controversy) to evangelicals—Barth’s doctrines of revelation and election. Things get especially interesting when Galli uses Barth, a ’liberal’ theologian, to criticize evangelical overemphasis on subjective experience."

Leslie Leyland Fields
— author of Crossing the Waters: Following Jesus through the Storms, the Fish, the Doubt, and the Seas
"Galli’s masterful compendium of Barth not only beautifully unveils the best of this theological giant, but it’s a cheat sheet as well on the roots of evangelicalism. Most of all, it stirs and deepens our faith in the very ’Godness of God.’ Don’t miss this book."

John Wilson
— founding editor of Education & Culture
"It’s old news by now that evangelical theologians are reading Karl Barth with great appreciation. Not as well known, maybe, is the groundswell of interest in Barth among evangelicals outside the scholarly guild. For these readers, Mark Galli has written a refreshingly concise, warmhearted, and plain-spoken biography of Barth that also serves as an introduction to his theology. Bravo!"

Jeffrey Y. McSwain
— founder of Reality Ministries
"In this warm introduction Mark Galli succinctly captures Barth’s brilliance, his historical importance, and his intoxication with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Without shying away from the universalism question, Galli urges us to consider Barth’s claims and what preaching a Christ-centered gospel with Barth might mean in a pluralistic world."

John R. Franke
— author of Barth for Armchair Theologians
"Galli’s appreciative but critical posture makes this an ideal starting place for evangelicals (and others) who want to better understand Barth and his ongoing significance for Christian witness in the twenty-first century."
