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.

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 weve 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."
author of The Crucifixion: Understanding the Death of Jesus Christ
"A gracious, appealing portrait of Barths 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 evangelicalsBarths 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
"Gallis masterful compendium of Barth not only beautifully unveils the best of this theological giant, but its 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. Dont miss this book."
founding editor of Education & Culture
"Its 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 Barths 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 Barths 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
"Gallis 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."
