Barth’s Theological Ontology of Holy Scripture
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Arrested by the doctrinal cogency and rhetorical power of Barth's earlier writing, de scriptura sacra, Yuen holds it up for sustained interrogation. The result is an essay of considerable interest that raises significant questions about the pneumatological dimensions of Barth's theology of Scripture and scriptural reading."
--Donald Wood, Department of Divinity and Religious Studies, King's College, Scotland
"This is a welcome attempt to clarify a key aspect of Barth's doctrine of Scripture. Yuen surveys a number of Barth's writings and sermons that others neglect, and in so doing discovers the importance for Barth of the Spirit's vivifying work in biblical authors and readers alike. This study provides further help in correcting the tendency to view the Bible and its interpretation apart from the activity of the triune God, in whom the Bible lives, and moves, and has its being."
