More About Karl Barth

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?
Dr. Karl Barth speaks again  Aug 6, 2009
This reissue of Dr. Barth's American lectures is a quality package. The fidelity and clarity of the sound is remarkable. Dr. Barth's warm personality and humor is pleasant to experience - he speaks and lectures in English very deftly. The five lecture discs are lectures on the material in the first five chapters of Introduction to Evangelical Theology. Two discs contain Dr. Barth's answers to questions asked by a panel of American theological experts. There are photographs and other supplemental material on the data disc, including complete images of Markus Barth's commentary booklet that was included with the original LP set in 1963. The 8 CD set is nicely cased, and the varied label art makes it easy to distinguish between discs. This well-presented record of Dr. Karl Barth's historic personal appearance in America will please any of his fans.
