Who's Who of Mainliner on Barth Dec 11, 2005
I bought this book used in 1997 and just now finally got around to reading it. VERY interesting window into 1930s-80s mainline (non-evangelical) theological thought and life. This is a amazing collection of liberal and neo-orthodox (and occasionally liberal evangelical) theologians: Paul Lehmann, Bela Vassady, Tom Torrance, Geoffrey Bromiley, T H L Parker, Robert McAfee Brown, Clark Pinnock, Langdon Gilkey, Donald Bloesch, Elizabeth Achtemeier, Martin Marty, Arthur Cochrane, John Howard Yoder, John Cobb, John Hesselink, Bernard Ramm, Hendrikus Berkhof, Markus Barth, Eberhard Busch, Paul Minear, Harvet Cox, and several more. While some essays are haughty and obscure, most are refreshingly casual autobiographical snapshots.
In the process they give telling glimpses into some figures who themselves are almost as interesting as Barth. For example, I've read lots of Martin Marty over the years, but I have never read anything where he showed his theological cards and owned labels as clearly. Harvey Cox, shockingly, calls himself a "Barthian." Some, typically, use Barth as an excuse to baptize their heresy. Robert McAfee Brown, for example, makes a similar move as Daniel Migliore of Princeton does elsewhere. He takes an element of Barth's thought and uses it to make connections to South American Liberation Theology -- a move Barth, no doubt, would have been disgusted by.
Some essays are respectfully critical of Barth, others (Bernard Ramm) are straining to connect themselves with him whole-sale.
I could go on. You don't have to be a Barthian (I sure am NOT) to enjoy and appreciate this book.
