Karl Barth on the Christian Life

The Practical Knowledge of God

by Joseph L. Mangina (Author)
©2001 Monographs XVI, 228 Pages
Series: Issues in Systematic Theology, Volume 8

Summary

This book examines a little-known facet of Karl Barth’s theology: his account of the practical or self-involving character of faith. Joseph L. Mangina helps to dispel the myth of Barth as an enemy of the human subject by guiding the reader through key texts from the Church Dogmatics. Examining such themes as religious experience, sin, emotion, and moral agency, Mangina shows that Barth is not merely a skilled dogmatic theologian, but a thoughtful and sensitive interpreter of the Christian life.
