SCM Veritas engages in critical and original questions of pressing concern to both philosophers and theologians. The major concern of all books in this series is to display a rigorous theological critique of categories not often thought to be theological in character, such as phenomenology or metaphysics. 

Karl Barth and Martin Heidegger are doubtless two of the most important and influential thinkers of the 20th century. In this groundbreaking book Timothy Stanley investigates how the question of being developed through their respective accounts of protestant theology. Whereas Heidegger suggested a post-onto-theological pathway, Barth inverted the question of being in a thoroughgoing theological ontology. In the end, both reconfigured the relationship between philosophy and theology in ways that continue to shape contemporary debate.

From the Back Cover:

"In this crisply written, thought-provoking book Timothy Stanley offers the reader a penetrating study of the problem of theological ontology and onto-theology in the thought of Barth and Heidegger, as well as an insightful discussion of the significance of these two thinkers' insights for Protestant theology today. Particularly impressive is the way Stanley uncovers the Protestant elements of Heidegger's thought and his exploration of how Barth attempts to root metaphysics in the being of the Trinitarian God. This impressive and imaginative book will be essential reading for anyone engaged in thinking through the possibility of a post-ontological, postmodern theology after Barth and Heidegger." -David R. Law, Professor of Christian Thought and Philosophical Theology, University of Manchester

"Tim Stanley's book is a bold step towards thinking Barth differently. Controversial to those who consider Barth's theology as a dismissal of metaphysics, this book has affinities with the project the Finnish School are engaged in with respect to Martin Luther. It heralds a reappraisal of the relationship between Protestantism and metaphysics crucial to ecumenical dialogue today, and it lays the foundation for a new conception of Protestant ecclesiology. Tim Stanley is another young theologian to watch." -Graham Ward, Regius Professor of Divinity, University of Oxford

"Elegantly written and argued, this book by Timothy Stanley offers us a bold and exciting re-reading of the heritage of Karl Barth, who is here proposed a profound countervalence to the 'postmodern' realisation of Protestant metaphysics in Martin Heidegger. In so doing Stanley unsettles more than a few of our settled lucidities concerning not least the status of 'ontology' in Barth's thought. This book proves the vitality of Barth beyond the old pro et contra that would squeeze the great Swiss theologian into the confines of some predetermined 'Barthianism.'" -Aaron Riches, Centre of Theology and Philosophy, University of Nottingham

"This is an impressive work. Stanley not only forges new ways of thinking about Protestant ontology in relation to Postmodernism, but advances the discussion of Heidegger's relation to Luther and Barth's use of Anselm to develop a truly theological ontology. Highly recommended, especially, for courses in 20th century theology." -William Dyrness, Professor of Theology and Culture, Fuller Theological Seminary
"For better or worse twentieth century Continental philosophy and Protestant theology were dominated by Heidegger and Barth respectively, and each remains the focus of lively discussion: admirers and adversaries have always been wary of relating these two apparently incompatible narratives of human destiny to one another, until now: providing compact and very fair accounts of each, Timothy Stanley goes on to make comparisons between the two which cast unexpected new light on Heidegger's atheism and Barth's Christian faith." -Fergus Kerr, Honorary Fellow in Divinity, University of Edinburgh
