Publisher's Description

Named one of Church Times's Best Christian Books

This volume provides a much-needed English translation of the sixth edition of what is considered the fundamental text for fully understanding Barthianism. Barth--who remains a powerful influence on European and American theology--argues that the modern Christian preacher and theologian face the same basic problems that confronted Paul. Assessing the whole Protestant argument in relation to modern attitudes and problems, he focuses on topics such as Biblical exegesis; the interrelationship between theology, the Church, and religious experience; the relevance of the truth of the Bible to culture; and what preachers should preach.

    A thoughtful secondary commentary to Romans

    As a pastor, I own about 10 commentaries on the book of Romans and I look for a wide range of perspectives (mostly conservative and reformed) as well as balanced (some technical, others applicational). I found Barth's take on Romans to read much like a sermon. Being relatively unfamiliar with Barth's theology, I found his writing to be strong, not boring or neutral and deeper intellectually than most. Himself a scholar, I could see why Barth was viewed as more of a theologian than a pastor. He sometimes goes off on tangents I don't quite understand, but overall his exhortative style is refreshing when so many commentators tend to sound restrained and held back. I wouldn't recommend this version as your primary resource on Romans, but instead as a secondary voice to bring added perspective to your own reflections of Paul's intense letter.
