Abstract:

Using a fresh reading of Barth's "Church Dogmatics", the author of this text advances a new interpretation of the Protestant theologian's work, and places it in relation to contemporary discussions of truth, justified belief, double agency and religious pluralism.

This perceptive study of the Protestant theologian Karl Barth decodes the most cryptic and elusive patterns of Barth's dialectic. Hunsinger here advances a new and authoritative interpretation of barth's mature theology, and places Barth's work in relation to contemporary discussions of truth, justified belief, double agency, and religious pluralism. Offering a fresh reading of the Church Dogmatics, Hunsinger uncovers a series of thought-forms that pervade and underlie Barth's work. He abandons the attempt to find one definite `key' or `central' concept in Barth's massive 10,000 page opus and instead presents a sophisticated array of motifs that serve as a guide to understanding the many facets of Barth's thought. How to Read Karl Barth offers a powerful account of the coherence of that multi-volumed work as a whole. Barth's thought.
