Swiss theologian Karl Barth traveled to the United States only once during his long career. In 1962, newly retired, he came to visit family and to deliver a series of lectures subsequently published (by Eerdmans) as Evangelical Theology: An Introduction, which remains in print and widely read to this day. Besides recounting interesting and poignant biographical details about Barth’s two-month journey through the States, the authors of this book revisit central themes in Barth’s mature theology and explore the theological and ethical significance of his Evangelical Theology.
Even more, the distinguished scholars contributing to this volume assess contemporary North American theology and show how Barth’s Evangelical Theology remains as bracing, powerful, and relevant today as it was 50 years ago.
