Karl Barth: An Introductory Biography for Evangelicals (Eerdmans, September 28, 2017) 176 pages.
Many books have been written to introduce Karl Barth the theologian, but not many to introduce Karl Barth the person. I’ve tried to do that here. Not many are aware of the great theologian’s courageous challenge to 19th century liberalism as well as against the fascism of Adolf Hitler. You’ll find those stories here, along with an explanation of some of his theology. It’s written for evangelicals in particular since (a) we have been so suspicious of him for decades, (b) he has became an influence among evangelical scholars, and (c) his theology has resources that can be used profitably by evangelicals pastors and leaders. Barth is considered by many to be the greatest theologian of the 20th century, and I hope this little volume will help introduce him to a wider audience.
