Karl Barth: Against Hegemony
Karl Barth (1886-1968) is widely acknowledged as the greatest theologian of the twentieth century and is shown in this book to be a profoundly political thinker. Though he wrote more than any other twentieth century theologian, he was also fully engaged in social and political ideas. Dr. Timothy Gorringe explores this wealth of material and shows how it is related to the events of the twentieth century.
