On religion : the revelation of God as the sublimation of religion by Karl Barth( )

410 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 7,931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To support his theory that Karl Barth can and should be studied as a religious theorist rather than just a theologian, Garrett Green presents a new translation of Paragraph 17 of Karl Barth's Church Dogmatics. This important new translation counters the idea that Barth rejected the notion of religion out of hand by correcting a number of errors in the original version that obscure Barth's central argument. In particular the crucial word °ufheburg' in the title is translated here as sublimation rather than abolition. This translation will do better justice to the German original and will be more accessible to contemporary readers. Unlike the original version, all Greek, Latin and Hebrew citations are translated into English. The translation is accompanied by a text by Garrett Green introducing the scholar and student to Barth as a religious theorist

The humanity of God by Karl Barth( Book )

31 editions published between 1960 and 1999 in English and German and held by 1,268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In "The humanity of God", the author lays the cornerstone for his new evangelical theology by stating that the deity of God, rightly understood, includes his humanity. This is the irrefutable good news of God's acceptance of man through Christ. In "Evangelical theology in the 19th century", he examines the theology of liberalism against which he and his fellows reacted. In the last essay, "The gift of freedom", he deals with practical problems of the Christian life. The author finds the basis of evangelical ethics in the overwhelming fact that God has made made free and chosen man to be his child and a partner in his work

Protestant theology in the nineteenth century : its background & history by Karl Barth( Book )

23 editions published between 1972 and 2002 in English and German and held by 936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Featuring an extensive introduction by Colin E. Gunton that recontextualizes and reintroduces Barth's work for a new generation, this book provides a review of the shapers of modern Protestant thought and practice. Barth offers insightful readings of all the most significant figures of the modern period - Rousseau, Lessing, Kant, Hegel, Schleiermacher, Feuerbach, Ritschl, and others - as well as several lesser-known thinkers. Also included here are Barth's preface to the original 1946 German edition and a translation of his hard-to-find essay "On the Task of a History of Modern Protestant Theology."" "In addition to providing insight into some of the church's seminal theologians, this volume offers an excellent look at Barth himself. In capturing Barth's personal views on doctrine, the church, and intellectual history, the book also provides valuable background reading for those studying Barth's own theology."--BOOK JACKET
