Item description for The Theology of Karl Barth: Exposition and Interpretation (Communio Book) by Hans Urs Von Balthasar & Edward T. Oakes...

Translated by Edward T. Oakes, S.J. The book makes clear how much the issues dividing Catholicism from Protestantism had been transformed in the course of four centuries. It shows how a fundamental rethinking of issues could lead, not just to a rapprochement between the two great rivers of Western Christianity, but to an astonishingly new understanding of the Christian message in the modern world. The entire book has been translated from the original German.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Theology of Karl Barth: Exposition and Interpretation (Communio Book)?

Great book on Barth's theology from a Catholic perspective  Aug 2, 2007
This is a well written book which provides a succinct overview of Karl Barth's theology and development of thought over his career as a theologian. It will provide the reader with a road map for further studies into the vast work of this prolific thinker from another great theologian who is always respectful of Barth while careful to delineate
the many similarities and contrasts within the light of Catholic theology. Balthasar does write in such a way that Barth can and does speak for himself and this alone makes this book worthwhile. This is a book that Protestants and Catholics alike can find rewarding.
Still Worth Reading  Oct 29, 2005
Though now superceded by Bruce McCormack's book on Barth (Karl Barth's Critically Realistic Dialectial Theology) Von Balthasar's book still contains a beautiful interpretation of Barth's theology. The book is very well written, understandable, and appreciative. For those looking for a good introduction into Barth's theology this is one book to have on the shelf.
A classic interpretive and ecumenical study  Apr 13, 2000
An excellent book! Not only is this a significant work by one of the past century's most important Roman Catholic theologians, but it has set a paradigm for Barth interpretation for 40 years since its publication - even among Protestant scholars. Balthasar's study focuses on the issue of nature and grace (naturally) and the promise of Christological ways of theologizing for ecumenical dialogue. Balthasar's reading of Barth's theological development has been challenged of late (Bruce McCormack), but his 'magisterial work' contains so much promise and insight that it is not likely to be outdated anytime soon. I definately recomend this book to anyone interested in Barth, Balthasar, or in Catholic-Protestant dialogue.
