Karl Barth: fundamentalist? Neo-orthodox? Modern? Postmodern? Postliberal? The reception of Barth’s theology has divided his readers. How should one read Barth amid the cacophony of his critics? What do Barth’s theology and ministry have to do with us today? The course avoids tiresome apologies for Barth’s idiosyncrasies in order to focus on his enduring gift: a theology that is scriptural, modern, and ecclesial for persons engaged in church and society today.

Prerequisite: Introduction to Theology (T-300) or equivalent.

The January term course is taught as an intensive Jan 4-8 and 11-15
