Format: Hardcover
Karl Barth (1886-1968) was a Swiss Reformed theologian who wrote many crucially-important theological works (e.g., Church Dogmatics: A Selection). He wrote in the Foreword to the original 1946 edition, "This is not a new book. Indeed, it is a relatively old work. During my time in Basle I was unable to continue and improve the lectures on the history of modern Protestant theology ... The reader... will find all sorts of gaps that I would not leave open today... I have allowed publication because I have constantly had occasion to wish and suggest that the attitude and approach of the younger generations of Protestant theologians to the period of the Church that is just past might be rather different from that which they now often seem to regard...as the norm."

Barth deals with Rousseau, Lessing, Kant, Herder, Novalis, Hegel, Schliermacher, Wegscheider, de Wette, Mahreineke, Baur, Tholuck, Menken, Feuerbach, Strauss, Schweizer, Dorner, Muller, Rothe, Hormann, Beck, Vilmar, Kohlbrugge, Blumhardt, and Ritschl. (In fact, the German title of the book was 'From Rousseau to Ritschl.')

He notes, "By the phrase 'problem of theology,' I mean the subject-matter of theology... It is a matter of God and his revelation... It is a matter of this man being in the Church as the place of organ of the covenant... It is a matter of a book, the Bible, in which everything is documented and told to us." (Pg. 80)

He asserts that "The factor which is decisive in making a theology theology does not belong to the motifs whose presence can be asserted or denied in anyone's work... The Christian quality of a theology ...

Format: Paperback
I love this kind of literature, it is a wealth of information about XVIII and XIX century Germany's theology and philosophy as well. I do not have access to German theological literature, but in this text, I found and read some sources that I wouldn't find anywhere because I cannot read German. I liked the XVIII century profile of the culture which the book describes as a background and soil of the theologians Barth examines.

Barth shows himself as an example of how a theologian have to tackle its task. The pressure and problems that a theologian has to answer and cope with are so complex and daunting.

This work is one of the most penetratingly insightful that I have ever read. A work of this kind comes but very rarely; it stands head and shoulders above most that would dare to venture into this domain. There is a sense in which you have never finished this work; you keep coming back to it again and again, only to find that there are depths that you thought you had plumbed but you actually had not. So you dive again. The scholarship of Barth is so recognized that it is to irritatingly state the obvious over again. Yes, and the Christian grace to be found therein puts paid to the shallow acrimony found in so many dwarfs of thought. Most important of all and in keeping with this colossus, the commitment to the Gospel in its multifarious dimensions has made this reader/reviewer want to burst into the Magnificat and with Mary say "My soul does magnify the Lord and my spirit rejoices ...Thank you Prof. Barth, who though dead(?) still speaketh! Claudius Clear.

4 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Bruce P. Barten on November 2, 2002
Format: Paperback
The first Complete English Edition had almost 400 pages for Part 1 - Background, before the few hundred pages of History which cover the century mentioned in the title, including chapters on Schleiermacher, Baur, Feuerbach, and Strauss. Most of the chapters have a heavy philosophical theme, but lines of verse liven up Barth's analysis of Lessing's play, "Nathan the Wise," the poems of Herder, and much of what Barth has to say about Novalis, who proclaimed, "The secret path leads inwards. Eternity with its worlds, the past and the future, is within us, or nowhere." Most pages in this book which have footnotes start with a footnote number 1, and anyone flipping through pages might well forget where "Frag., 593" can be found. An earlier review of this book has incorrect citations on David Friedrich Strauss. Albert Schweitzer wrote about Strauss in his THE QUEST FOR THE HISTORICAL JESUS, a book which covered a topic on which Struass wrote three books with varying points of view and for different audiences. The biography called D. FR. STRAUSS AND THE THEOLOGY OF HIS TIME was by Hausrath, who called him "essentially a pathological figure."
The last page on Hegel provides the kind of contrast which makes a comparison of the two parts of this book imperative. "Theology had, and still has, no occasion to throw stones at Hegel, as if it had not trodden the same path as he, only not in so firm or so logical a manner as he did. When we come to consider Schleiermacher we shall have to ask very seriously whether his secret is a different one from that of Hegel, only that with Hegel it might be a secret which was to a great extent more respectable and at all events more instructive than that of Schleiermacher."
