Item Description...
Karl Barth: His Life from Letters and Autobiographical Texts is an unparalleled accomplishment. An authentic "church father" of the Post-Reformation era, and declared to be the most important theologian since Thomas Aquinas by Pope Pius XII, Barth's seminal contributions to theology, the life of the church, and the world of culture and politics have been frequently noted, and are increasingly studied. Indeed, Barth will be, based on current levels of study, the most influential non-living theologian of teh 21st Century.Yet this work, compiled by Barth's personal assistant Eberhard Bethge, presents extraordinary new information and insight based on his own correspondence and notes. What one finds in this work is Barth's own running commentary on events and people--from 1886 to 1968.Everything is recounted from his autobiographical perspective and chiefly in his own words, and this is precisely what makes the volume so fascinating and valuable. The brilliance, wit, and humanity of Barth shine through everywhere as he is seen as son, brother, student, editor, friend, pastor, husband, father, soldier, teacher, theologian, church leader, political critic, polemicist, ecumenist, author, preacher, music lover, and senior citizen.The gigantic theologian is here, but--even more--the man shines through. An abundance of pictures accompanies the text--most of them to be seen for the first time. The contents of this book are new and of utmost interest and importance. Readers not familiar with the accomplishments of Karl Barth will learn to know both the man and his thought. Specialists will for the first time discern the figure behind the intellect. All who propose to understand the story of the twentieth century will be illumined by this book.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An outstanding book  Feb 29, 2004
The study of karl Barth has fascinated theologians for years; I, too, have begun to read more of Barth and his work. He has been an enormous influence to a wide variety of theologians, with his name popping up in numerous readings and books.

What I was not particularly aware of was the story of Barth "the man." I knew of his opposition to Hitler, but not the whole story; I knew he was both loved and hated by the Swiss and Germans, but not the reasons. I had no knowledge of his intellecual journey.

Busch's biography answers all of these questions with astounding clarity and remarkably makes himself an unknown person by using primariliy Barth's own words from his writings and letters. This is an achievement that is unsurpassed in the books I have read. Busch is to be commended for a sigularly fascinating and enlightening read.

Read and Enjoy!
