In Karl Barth and the Christian Message Colin Brown attempts to get inside Karl Barth’s mind. Brown seeks to see issues as Barth saw them and bring into focus Barth’s approach to the Christian message—and to find out what can be learned from it.

The book is divided into four main sections. The first traces the course of Barth’s life, outlines briefly his main writings, and sees how and why Barth has come to believe what he believes and think in the way he does. The second deals with the question of revelation, the third with his natural theology, and the fourth with Barth’s Christological approach to doctrine.

Can any intelligent man or woman believe in miracles today? Can one believe in Jesus without believing the miracle stories? If Jesus performed miracles during his life on earth, can we also expect miracles today?

In this book Colin Brown, author of Miracles and the Critical Mind, returns to the subject of Jesus’ miracles, this time writing for the general reader. Drawing on the world of scholarship, but avoiding overly detailed philosophical discussion, Brown clearly lays out the arguments for the reader who is not a trained philosopher or theologian. All who have questions about the meaning of miracles and their role in Christian faith today will find here a fresh look at this subject that has puzzled people for centuries.
