In this essay, Barth discusses the relationship between Christ and Adam as understood by Paul. Moving beyond traditional exegetical and theological scholarship done on Romans 5, Barth offers an entirely new interpretation of the conception of humanity presented in Paul's view of the Christ-Adam relationship. A valid contribution to the interpretation of Romans 5, 'Christ and Adam' is also an example of Barth's exegetical method and provides insight into his broader theological project.
After 15 years of parish ministry in his native Scotland and four in the troubled Northern Ireland of the early 70s, Rev Dr. Tom Smail joined the Fountain Trust, promoting charismatic renewal in Britain and beyond. From 1979 - 85 he was Vice-Principal and Lecturer in Doctrine at St John's College, Nottingham, and then led a church in Croydon until retirement in 1994. He has written seven books Once and for All: A Confession of the Church (Wipf and Stock), Windows on the Cross (DLT/Wipf and Stock), Praying with Paul (Bible Reading Fellowship), Like Father, like Son: The Trinity Imaged in Our Humanity (Paternoster/ Eerdmans), The Giving Gift (Wipf and Stock), Reflected Glory (Hodder) and The Forgotten Father (Hodder/Wipf and Stock) and continues to lecture and preach in the UK and abroad.
Karl Barth was described by Pope Pius XII as the most important theologian since Thomas Aquinas, the Swiss Pastor and Theologian, and Barth continues to be a major influence on students, scholars and preachers. Barth's theology found its expression mainly through his closely reasoned fourteen part magnum opus, Die Kirchliche Dogmatik. Having taken over 30 years to write, the Church Dogmatics is regarded as one of the most important theological works of all time, and represents the pinnacle of Barth's achievements as a theologian. Some of his other major works include The Epistle to the Romans; Evangelical Theology, Christian Life; Christ and Adam and The Humanity of God.
