Product description
Karl Barth is widely regarded as the most important theologian of the twentieth century, and his observations about the church and its place in a modern world continue to engage religious scholars nearly fifty years after his death. This English translation of the Swiss-published Conversations is a three-volume collection featuring correspondence, articles, interviews, and other short-form writings by Barth from 1959-1962. Among them are dialogues with representatives of the Evangelical Community Movement (1959); conversations with prison chaplains and a question-and-answer session with the Conference of the World Student Christian Federation (1960); discussions with Methodist preachers, Zurich pastors, and Catholic students of theology (1961); press conferences in New York and Chicago (1962); and an interview at the United Nations (1962). Within these pages, scholars and students will find a comprehensive view into Barth's life and thinking about theology and its role in society today.
Author Information

Karl Barth, Eberhard Busch, Karlfried Froehlich

Karl Barth (1886-1968) was Professor of Theology at the University of Basel, Switzerland. One of the greatest theologians and preachers of the twentieth century, he is best known for his monumental systematic theology, Church Dogmatics. Eberhard Busch is professor emeritus of Reformed theology at the University of Goettingen, Germany. A one-time student of and personal assistant to Karl Barth, he is also the son of one of the Barmen Declaration's original signers. Karlfried Froehlich is Princeton Theological Seminary's Benjamin B. Warfield Emeritus Professor of Ecclesiastical History and serves as German editor for Barth in Conversation. His special interest is the history of biblical interpretation, especially in the Middle Ages, Christian iconography, and ecumenism. Darrell L. Guder is Princeton Theological Seminary's Henry Winters Luce Emeritus Professor of Missional and Ecumenical Theology and serves as English editor for Barth in Conversation. His writing and teaching focus on the theology of the missional church, especially the theological implications of the paradigm shift to post-Christendom as the context for Christian mission in the West. David C. Chao is a PhD candidate in theology at Princeton Theological Seminary and serves as Project Editor for Barth in Conversation. His research interests include Protestant and Catholic dogmatics (especially as they pertain to issues of nature and grace), Reformed theology (classical and modern), and Asian American theology.
