Item Description...
Overview
In this brief essay, drawn from Church Dogmatics, Barth articulates what it means to follow Jesus in faith. He emphasizes that discipleship involves a detachment from the authority of possessions, foregoing the pursuit of personal glory, challenging the fear and use of force, the dissolution of self-evident personal attachments, and a "better righteousness," which goes beyond actions to intentions and practices piety in secret.

"The command of Jesus . . . is issued with all the freedom and sovereignty of grace against which there can be no legitimate objections, of which no one is worthy, for which there can be no preparation, which none can elect, and in the face of which there can be no qualification."

More About Karl Barth, Geoffrey W. Bromiley & K. C. Hanson

Karl Barth Karl Barth (May 10, 1886 – December 10, 1968) was a Swiss Reformed theologian. Barth is often regarded as the greatest Protestant theologian of the twentieth century. His influence expanded well beyond the academic realm to mainstream culture, leading him to be featured on the cover of Time on April 20, 1962.

Beginning with his experience as a pastor, Barth rejected his training in the predominant liberal theology typical of 19th-century European Protestantism. Instead he embarked on a new theological path initially called dialectical theology, due to its stress on the paradoxical nature of divine truth (e.g., God's relationship to humanity embodies both grace and judgment). Barth's unease with the dominant theology which characterized Europe led him to become a leader in the Confessing Church in Germany, which actively opposed Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime. In particular, Barth and other members of the movement vigorously attempted to prevent the Nazis from taking over the existing church and establishing a state church controlled by the regime. This culminated in Barth's authorship of the Barmen Declaration, which fiercely criticized Christians who supported the Nazis.

Many critics have referred to Barth as the father of neo-orthodoxy — a term emphatically rejected by Barth himself. A more accurate description of his work might be "a theology of the Word." Barth's work had a profound impact on twentieth century theology and figures such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer — who like Barth became a leader in the Confessing Church — Thomas Torrance, Reinhold Niebuhr, Jacques Ellul, Stanley Hauerwas, Jürgen Moltmann, and novelists such as John Updike and Miklós Szentkuthy.

One of the most prolific and influential theologians of the twentieth century, Barth emphasized the sovereignty of God, particularly through his reinterpretation of the Calvinistic doctrine of election, the sinfulness of humanity, and the "infinite qualitative distinction between God and mankind". His most famous works are his The Epistle to the Romans, which marked a clear break from his earlier thinking; and his massive thirteen-volume work Church Dogmatics, one of the largest works of systematic theology ever written.

Karl Barth was born in 1886 and died in 1968.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good Book, terrible editorial work  May 5, 2008
A good essay by Karl Barth from his Church Dogmatics. I wholeheartedly concure with the previous reviewers reguarding its devotional and challenging quality, though one should know that he himself admits to simply covering the more original material of Bonhoeffer's Cost of Discipleship. I'm giving this edition only three stars because the editing to make it gender inclusive was so poorly done that it detracts from the flow and power of the original translation.
 
Reflecting on the meaning of following Christ  May 30, 2006
Are you considering becoming or trying to become one of those who accompanies Jesus "wholeheartedly and constantly, sharing his life and destiny at the expense of all other engagements and commitments" (5)? This book will help you reflect upon the freedom given and obedience required. Recommended for devotional reading.
 
The Call to Discipleship  Mar 9, 2006
Karl Barth's thoughtful paper provides a meaningful view of discipleship. Recommend for those who prefer to "go deeper" into scripture and the Christain life.
 
EXCELLENT!  Jul 21, 2005
A few months ago someone recommended I begin reading the writings of Karl Barth. I started with this book because it was the first one I could find in a bookstore. I'm glad it was!

This little volume is actually a section taken from Barth's "Church Dogmatics," and does a wonderful job of describing the nature of discipleship as well as the theory behind the practical outworking of following Christ in one's life.

"The Call to Discipleship" is now a regular part of my devotional reading, and will probably remain so for some time to come.
