In the course of his multivolume Church Dogmatics, Karl Barth not only cites thousands of Scripture texts but also offers extensive exegetical discussion of numerous passages. In this volume twelve leading theologians and biblical scholars explore Barth's exegesis of particular passages in the Gospels.
How does Barth's practice of theological exegesis play out in his reading of the Gospels? What are the fundamental features of Barth's interpretation of Gospel texts, and to what extent do they enliven theology, biblical studies, and ethics today? Reading the Gospels with Karl Barth offers answers to such questions and will provide fresh stimulus for further study and discussion.
