Product Description

How Jewish was Karl Barth?

With this provocative question, David Novak opens Karl Barth, the Jews, and Judaisma volume that brings nine eminent Jewish and Christian theologians into direct and respectful dialogue on a crucial aspect of Barth’s thought and legacy.

Highlights of the volume include a personal exchange between Novak and Eberhard Busch; classic essays by Thomas Torrance, C.E.B. Cranfield, and Hans Küng; and a concluding reflection by Ellen Charry on ending enmity. These scholars not only make a noteworthy contribution to Barth studies but also demonstrate creative possibilities for building positive Jewish-Christian relations without theological compromise.
