Product Description

Renowned scholar Dr. Jon Coutts provides a work of constructive practical theology and a critical commentary on the ecclesiology of Karl Barth's unfinished Church Dogmatics in his recent book, A Shared Mercy: Karl Barth on Forgiveness and the Church. Coutts integrates dogmatic and pastoral theology to explain the place and meaning of interpersonal forgiveness within Christ's ongoing ministry of reconciliation, connecting forgiveness to the practices of forbearance, confession, discipline, prayers, and the sacraments. For both the seasoned scholar and the newcomer to Barth, Coutts shows the ongoing relevance of Barth's thinking for churches today. The result is a re-envisioning of the church in terms of a mercy that is crucially and definitively shared.

Editorial Reviews

"It is almost unthinkable that the insights of Karl Barth have yet to be fully brought to the central topic of forgiveness. In this book, Coutts not only fills this significant gap in Barth research, but does so with the care, sensitivity, and depth of analysis that is a model for any Barth reader. Any student of Barth and any theologian interested in forgiveness will find much worth in engaging seriously with this work."

—Tom Greggs, Marischal Chair of Divinity, University of Aberdeen

"Jon Coutts has provided us with a brilliant study of the character of forgiveness. Leaning into the wisdom of Karl Barth, he demonstrates that the church cannot be the church until it learns to give and receive forgiveness, and that this can only be learned and offered insofar as the church leans into the forgiveness offered by God in Christ. This book is a wonderful explication of the pivotal line in the creed, 'I believe in . . . the forgiveness of sins.'"

—Gordon T. Smith, president, Ambrose University, Calgary, Alberta

"In this accomplished volume, Jon Coutts presents a bold vision of the theology and practice of Christian forgiveness that navigates this acutely difficult terrain with sensitivity and insight. Operating at the boundary of systematic, ethical, and pastoral reflection, Coutts draws on Karl Barth's doctrine of reconciliation to present a scripturally based and ecclesially attentive account of forgiveness as a reality of grace in a truly reconciled yet still sinful world. The result is a work that offers both consolation and challenge to Christians in their calling to be servants of reconciliation and deserves the careful attention of both theologians and pastors. Highly recommended."

—Paul T. Nimmo, King's Chair of Systematic Theology, University of Aberdeen
