This book introduces the reader to selected aspects of Karl Barth's theology, often by contrasting Barth's thought with that of other prominent theologians, either contemporaneous to Barth or coming after him. I disagreed with the author's approach in analyzing Karl Barth's theology of non-militarism (or Christian pacifism), which Barth staunchly defended from the teachings of Christ. Dr. Hunsinger took full opportunity of Barth's biblically-based convictions to mandate the most stringent opposition to all nuclear armaments on the part of all conscientious believers who take the Gospel seriously. Even granting Barth's total concurrence with Hunsinger on this issue, I take issue with his seemingly dogmatic insistence that any Christian who does not advocate for nuclear disarmament is somehow betraying the religion of Christ. It will always be the case that one believer's most cherished causes (as derived from their understanding of the New Testament) will differ from those of another Christian, about which she/he has been equally convinced.
