About-

This in-depth portrait of Charlotte von Kirschbaum examines the notable influence she exerted on Karl Barth and his writings. In the Shadow of Karl Barth also includes two of von Kirschbaum's own lectures, notably "The Role of Women in the Proclamation of the Word," an important contribution to feminist thought.

Through personal interviews and contacts with relatives and friends of both Barth and von Kirschbaum, author Renate Koebler frees von Kirschbaum from obscurity, keeping her memory fresh. Koebler's work will be of special interest to seminarians, church historians, theologians, and all readers concerned with women and religion.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"For almost forty years Charlotte von Kirschbaum was Barth's closest companion and coworker. Barth himself spoke of her 'immeasurable contribution to the formation and development' of his theological work. The author of this book is not willing to let Charlotte von Kirschbaum be one of the forgotten women of history."
--Keith Crim, translator
