Karl Barth and Evangelical Theology: Convergences and Divergences

Sung Wook Chung (Ed)

$25.99

Paperback

The work of Karl Barth is central to modern Western theology, both historical and constructive. Over the past twenty years, renewed interest in Barth has made him a major voice in contemporary systematic theological circles once again, and the revival of constructive doctrinal thinking owes much to his influence.

This work explores the substantial convergences and divergences between Barth's theology and the historic evangelical faith. It will appeal to evangelical readers interested in reassessing the influence and impact of Barth's theology and will present ways for them to dynamically engage with Barth's theology for the benefit of the evangelical community and beyond.

Contributors include:

  • Gabriel Fackre--Barth on Revelation
  • Kevin J. Vanhoozer--Barth on the Bible
  • Sung Wook Chung--Barth on God and election
  • Oliver D. Crisp--Barth on Creation
  • Henri A. G. Blocher--Barth's anthropology
  • Kurt Anders Richardson--Barth's Christology and theological method
  • Frank D. Macchia--Barth's pneumatology
  • Alister E. McGrath--Barth on justification
  • Timothy George--Barth on church and sacraments
  • John Bolt--Barth's eschatology
  • Veli-Matti Karkkainen--Barth's theology of religions
  • John R. FrankeBarth, the postmodern turn and evangelical theology
. A foreword by Donald Bloesch is also included.

"If evangelicals have often been puzzled by and sometimes hostile toward Barth's work, this set of courteous, interpretive essays on major topics in his theology points in a different direction, one in which commendation and appropriation come before critique. This collection ought to do much to stimulate fresh evangelical engagement with one of the great gospel thinkers of the modern Christian tradition."

A balanced appraisal of Barth's theology from a solidly evangelical perspective.

"This collection ought to do much to stimulate fresh evangelical engagement with one of the great gospel thinkers of the modern Christian tradition."
- Professor John Webster, University of Aberdeen.

Karl Barth is undoubtedly one of the most influential Christian theologians of the twentieth century. However, the reception of many evangelicals to Barth's theology has been complicated. Some evangelical theologians rejected his theology, arguing that his view of Scripture is inconsistent with historic evangelical views. Others accepted wholeheartedly Barth's emphasis on the Word of God and Christ-centred interpretation of the Gospel.

This book explores the convergences and divergences between the theology of Karl Barth and historic evangelical faith, and on that basis presents ways for evangelicals to engage dynamically with Barth's theology.
