Karl Barth (1886-1968) has been called the most important Protestant theologian since Schleiermacher. A lifetime of work produced a huge and complex body of writings that emerged from both his theological teaching and from his engagement in church life. This book draws together these readings to provide a clear and authoritative introduction to the main themes in Barth's theology. In an accessible way, it shows the continuity and coherence of Barth's work and stresses the importance of his biblical and ethical writings alongside his systematic theology.

'...the treatment is clear, and delivers the kind of introductory guide which the author promised...for those requiring some basic knowledge of this influential theologian, Webster's book offers a good starting point.'--Sanford Lakoff "Reformed Theological Journal "
