More About Karl Barth & Robert McAfee Brown

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.

Good Introduction to Karl Barth's Theology  Nov 26, 2007
If one wants a good introduction to Karl Barth's theology, I suggest this book as a starter (the other book is "Dogmatics in Outline"). The book is based on the Apostles' Creed and Barth develops his theology around it. Though Barth has been vilified by many conservative evangelicals for having an insufficient view of the inspiration of Scripture, promoting progressive politics, and advocating a universalistic soteriology, one should not discount his works based on these shortcomings.

Barth is a profound thinker and theologian. He will say things that will be of much corrective to certain forms of conservative evangelical theology (one good example is the tendency among many modern evangelicals to construct God on their own terms). Despite some unbiblical things that Barth says at times Barth is one of very few theologians who are consistently Christocentric and grace-centered. Some of the better discussions in this book are on the chapters on the Person of Christ (5-7), the atonement (8-10), the forgiveness of sins (15), and the afterlife (16). However, the appendix alone is worth the price of the book: it deals with Barth's theological methodology in a nutshell.

Overall, I recommend this book for the novice in Barth's theology. Though Barth made the tragic mistake of being a socialist (the idea that everyone should receive the same paycheque is ludicrous) and for promoting his idiosyncratic view of election (universalism is emphatically denied even as a possibility in Scripture), he has done a great service for Protestant theology in the 20th century through his works.
