In his intoriduction to Credo, Robert McAffee Brown notes that “the reader has the privilege of disagreeing with Barth. He no longer has the privilege of ignoring him.”

Perhaps the twentieth century’s most influential theologian, Karl Barth cannot be overlooked. This collection will prove an invaluable resource for scholars examining his theological development and the perfect access point for newcomers to Barth. Examine some of Barth’s shorter works on an array of subjects—from the church in wartime, to ethics, to Mozart—alongside Eberhard Busch’s definitive Barth biography, compiled from letters and autobiographical texts. This collection offers compelling new insights for Barth enthusiasts as well as a springboard for studying the formidable Church Dogmatics.

Want to tackle Barth’s Church Dogmatics next? Check out the complete 31-volume study edition. And for studies on Barth’s theology, see T&T Clark Karl Barth Collection.

Karl Barth (1886–1968), a Swiss Protestant theologian and pastor, was one of the leading thinkers of twentieth-century theology, described by Pope Pius XII as the most important theologian since Thomas Aquinas. He helped to found the Confessing Church and his thinking formed the theological framework for the Barmen Declaration. He taught in Germany, where he opposed the Nazi regime. In 1935, when he refused to take the oath of allegiance to Adolf Hitler, he was retired from his position at the University of Bonn and deported to Switzerland. There he continued to write and develop his theology.

Barth’s work and influence resulted in the formation of what came to be known as neo-orthodoxy. For Barth, modern theology, with its assent to science, immanent philosophy, and general culture and with its stress on feeling, was marked by indifference to the word of God and to the revelation of God in Jesus, which he thought should be the central concern of theology.

    Does anyone know if this is the Karl Barth of the hyper grace movement?

    I am so happy that Logos is adding these volumes to the library. Each book clarifies aspects of Barth's thought, and enables a more realistic engagement with Barth for non-specialists than is possible through the Church Dogmatics.
