Over the past twenty years or so studies on Karl Barth have become increasingly technical. The ironic result is that although Barth wrote chiefly for preachers, scholars have become the primary gatekeepers to Barth's rich theological thought.
This collection of essays introduces Barth with clarity and depth, providing pastors and other serious readers with an overview of Barth's views on Scripture. George Hunsinger, a recognized expert on Barth who passionately wants preachers to benefit from Barth's writings brings together ten distinguished scholars who cover such topics as Barth's belief that Scripture is both reliable and inspired, his typological exegesis, his ideas about time and eternity, and more. This book aims to whet the reader's appetite to read and engage with Barth further.
