This book offers a critical analysis of the views of Ernst Troeltsch and Karl Barth regarding Christian faith and history. Troeltsch and Barth approached theology from seemingly antithetical vantage points. Troeltsch was basically a philosopher of history who sought religious understanding in the social and cultural manifestations of Christianity. Karl Barth was a dogmatic theologian who rigorously shielded his deliberations from all but strictly theological considerations. Ogletree seeks to identify overlapping interests in the writings of these two authors and to suggest a broader framework of understanding that constructively combines the insights of both.
