For the Sake of the World: Karl Barth and the Future of Ecclesial Theology
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, May 11, 2004 - Religion - 214 pages
"For the Sake of the World" gathers the presentations from one of the most successful Barth conferences ever held in the United States. Here thirteen of Karl Barthbs most astute interpreters explore in fresh ways a variety of themes from Barthbs life and work, showing how Barth still has much to offer the contemporary world.
Organized as a dialogue between the contributors, this volume features cutting-edge studies followed by substantial critical responses. The subjects discussed in detail include the Barth-Brunner correspondence, Barthbs position on the Jews during the Hitler era, Barth and politics, Barthbs doctrine of providence, Barthbs thought on Christian love and ethics, and Barthbs conception of time and eternity. The volume ends with a winsome memoir of Barth as a teacher.
