Karl Barth was, without doubt, one of the most significant religious thinkers of modern times. His radical affirmation of the revealed truth of Christianity changed the course of Christian theology in the twentieth century and is a source of inspiration for countless believers. Pope Pius XII declared that there had been nothing like Karl Barth's later thought since Thomas Aquinas. God Here and Now offers a succinct and accessible overview of that thought. In it, Barth outlines his position on the fundamental tenets of Christian belief, from the decision of faith to the authority of the Bible, and from the interpretation of grace to the significance of Jesus Christ. In this way Barth challenges each and every reader to discover what it means to encounter God, here and now.

Industry Reviews

'This volume brings together essays and addresses from the period of Barth's greatest maturity and breadth as a Christian theologian. Together they constitute some of Barth's best shorter work: rooted in prodigious knowledge of and love for the faith of the church, they are calm, concentrated statements of the Christian gospel as it addresses both the church and the world. Here in brief compass we can see Barth the dogmatician, Barth the ecumenist and Barth the Christian humanist allowing the gospel's wisdom to address central issues of Christian faith, action and witness in the world.' - Professor John Webster, Oxford University 'This is a fascinating collection of essays which shows Barth at his best engaging, infuriating, exciting, and always interesting. It provides a stimulus to reflection that no theologian should be without.' - Alister McGrath 'Karl Barth was a man of his time. Yet he was also a genius, able to see a little further than many and to offer new insights into the ways of God and mankind.' - Professor Colin Gunton, The Times 'With a startling suddenness [Barth's] message has transformed the whole outlook of Protestant theology on the continent.' - The Times Literary Supplement
