About-

'Regarding Karl Barth' is a distinctive engagement with the most significant elements in the theology of, arguably, the most prominent Christian thinker of the twentieth century. Through an ongoing dialogue with Barth's writings and the views of other theologians, notably Brunner, Kung, Lindbeck, McFague, and Moltmann, Trevor Hart initiates fresh explorations of key issues from Barth's work and shows how they continue to provide insight in our postmodern theological context. Topics covered include Scripture and revelation, the Trinity, natural theology, pluralism, justification by faith, ethics, and the nature and problems of religious language.

Beginning students, thoughtful pastors, and theologians familiar with Barth will all find this book to be a clear and helpful guide to his theology.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Barth is once again close to the center of theological debate, and these lively studies of his theology demonstrate the continuing relevance and vitality of the modern master of Reformed theology. Lucid, well informed, and judicious, this book offers an excellent orientation to Barth's work for those starting to explore its riches, and will stimulate fresh thinking on the part of seasoned readers. In sum: highly recommended."

John Webster, Professor of Systematic Theology, University of Aberdeen

"In this thought-provoking and clearly written book Trevor Hart wrestles with the theology of Karl Barth and compares Barth's thinking with other prominent contemporary theologians in a successful effort to articulate his own important theology. This book is not uncritical of Barth's theology but instead sees it as a significant way of illustrating new theological loci such as justification, revelation, incarnation, morality, analogy, and the Trinity.... This book is must reading for students of Karl Barth's theology and for all serious theologians."

Dr. Paul D. Molnar, Professor of Systematic Theology, St. John's University, New York
