View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

In this illuminating collection of essays, 15 scholars, with perspectives as diverse as their countries of origin, read Karl Barth?s theology against the backdrop of the complex and evolving relationships between the church, society and the academy. The time and context in and for which Barth wrote is no longer our own. Our today is pregnant with a perplexing mixture of near cultural diversity and distant globalized homogeneity. Far from a mere hagiographical retelling, critical attention to the ongoing reception and creative transformation of Barth?s theology within this today characterizes the collection. This includes a renewed appreciation for Barth?s methodology and the specifically theological manner in which it inspires new conversations across disciplinary boundaries. Though diverse in voice, read together, the texts present a vision of how dogmatic theology can both appreciate Barth?s basic insights and do constructive theology "after Barth".
