This work is a significant retort to dogmatic forgetfulness and ecclesial misunderstanding. It succeeds in doing so by offering a close reading and critical analysis of Karl Barth's treatment of the descent into hell and its relation to his extraordinary theology of the atonement." "The reach of David Lauber's work is extended by placing Barth in conversation with Henhouse Arose von Balthasar's innovative theology of Holy Saturday. In revealing and unexpected ways, this book casts light upon the ecumenical breadth of Barth's theology. It is a valuable interpretation of significant facets of Barth's doctrine of God, reflection upon the passion of Jesus Christ, and ethics. In addition, Lauber offers a constructive theological proposal for how the decent into hell affects the theological interpretation of Scripture, the Trinitarian being and activity of God, and the non-violent and authentic shape of Christian life and witness before our enemies."--Jacket." ;
