Editorial Reviews


The Journal of Religion
"These essays show a generosity of spirit, a breadth of knowledge, and a gentleness in the midst of discrimination and opposition that can only be admired. Theologians of many schools will learn and benefit from this fine, mature work, and look for more."
The Expository Times
"Hunsinger's great strength, besides his knowledge of the Barthian corpus, is the clarity of his writing and his ability to perceive and formulate theological distinctions."
Religious Studies Review
"Those readers familiar with the author's other published work on Barth will not be surprised by the high quality of these essays. . . This book is written with admirable clarity, and some essays could be fruitful in introductory courses on Barth."
"There is no doubt that this is an important book; it repays careful study."
Pro Ecclesia
"In an age when careless readings of other people's work are in vogue, this book offers refreshingly careful interpretations and analyses. Further, as much more than a collection of essays on Karl Barth, it offers a veritable catechism on major themes in Christian theology."

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.
