About-

Karl Barth was an eminently conversational theologian, and with the Internet revolution, we live today in an eminently conversational age. Being the proceedings of the 2010 Karl Barth Blog Conference, Karl Barth in Conversation brings these two factors together in order to advance the dialogue about Barth's theology and extend the online conversation to new audiences. With conversation partners ranging from Wesley to Žižek, from Schleiermacher to Jenson, from Hauerwas to the Coen brothers, this volume opens up exciting new horizons for exploring Barth's immense contribution to church and world. The contributors, who represent a young new generation of academic theologians, bring a fresh perspective to a topic--the theology of Karl Barth--that often seems to have exhausted its range of possibilities. This book proves that there is still a great deal of uncharted territory in the field of Barth studies. Today, more than forty years since the Swiss theologian's death, the conversation is as lively as ever.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This book is an exciting and important contribution to Barth studies. It breaks open the potential cul-de-sac of Barth scholarship to new conversation partners and thinkers. The result is a fascinating collection of essays that brings out new accents on Barth's work and offers constructive insights for the future of theology. . . . Let us hope this book sets an agenda for the future."
--Tom Greggs, Professor of Historical and Doctrinal Theology, King's College, University of Aberdeen, Scotland

"In this welcome collection of colorful and stimulating input from young scholars, we get to eavesdrop on some new 'conversations' surveying a diverse range of themes, and in the wake of the fresh questions raised, we are invited to hear again what Barth and others have heard and misheard."
--Jason Goroncy, Dean of Studies, Knox Centre for Ministry and Leadership, New Zealand

"This is a fascinating and instructive set of essays by a group of talented young theologians. These studies offer fresh perspectives on the thought of Barth and his dialogue partners and suggest new pathways for further exploration. Here we see both the ongoing power of Barth's theology to stimulate new conversations and the creative potential of a new generation of Barth scholars."
--Adam Neder, Associate Professor of Theology, Whitworth University, Washington
