Item description for Orthodox and Modern: Studies in the Theology of Karl Barth by Bruce L. McCormack...

Overview
Presents a unique reading of Karl Barth, focusing on understanding what it means to be orthodox under the conditions of modernity. In this enlightening study, Bruce McCormack reconsiders the importance of Karl Barth's theology. McCormack begins with Barth's relation to 19th century theologians and then turns to critique the works of contemporary authors within postmodern circles who have attempted to reinterpret Barth to fit their categories. The later sections of McCormack's study probe more deeply into Barth's theology and consider European perspectives. As the title affirms, McCormack suggests that Barth was, in fact, both orthodox and modern in his theology. McCormack has established a reputation as a thoughtful scholar, and his study of Barth will certainly find a broad audience in academic circles. But serious readers and clergy will also find it a helpful guide to Barth's theology and his continuing importance.

Reviews - What do customers think about Orthodox and Modern: Studies in the Theology of Karl Barth?

Orthodox and Modern  Jun 7, 2009
This book is not an easy read. While you think it would be more about the theology of Karl Barth you'll find that it talks more about his comtemporaries and what they believed as well as their opposing views of Karl's theology.
