Barth's Theology of Interpretation

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Through his single-minded insistence on the priority of the Bible in the life of the church, Karl Barth (1886-1968) decisively shaped the course of twentieth-century Christian theology. Drawing on both familiar texts and recently published archival material, Barth's Theology of Interpretation sheds new light on Barth's account of just what it is that scripture gives and requires. In tracing the movement of Barth's earlier thinking about scriptural reading, the book also raises important questions regarding the ways in which Barth can continue to influence contemporary discussions about the theological interpretation of scripture.
