About-

This reissue of Emil Brunner's 'Nature and Grace' with Karl Barth's response 'No!' places back into the hands of theological students one of the most important, and well publicized, theological arguments of the 20th century.

Here we see the climax of Barth and Brunner's disagreement over the point of contact for the gospel in the consciousness of natural man. Also at stake is the nature of the theological task.

Brunner claims that the task of that generation was to find a way back to a legitimate natural theology. Barth responds strongly, arguing that there is no way to knowledge of God by way of human reason. Barth's radical Christocentric redevelopment of Reformation theology left no room for any source of authority aside from the Word of God.

Bio(s)-

Karl Barth (1886 - 1968) was the most influential Protestant theologian of the 20th century. After twelve years in the pastorate, Barth went on to teach at Gottingen, Munster, and Bonn before settling in at the University of Basel from 1935 -1962. He authored many books, including the renowned Church Dogmatics, The Humanity of God, and The Epistle to the Romans, the book that launched a theological revolution.

Emil Brunner (1889-1966) was the most widely read theologian in the English-speaking world throughout the mid-twentieth century. Brunner was Professor of Systematic and Practical Theology at the University of Zurich from 1924-1955. His key works 'The Mediator', 'The Divine Imperative', and 'Man in Revolt' were standard texts for Protestant seminaries for decades.
