Daniel L. Migliore
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, Aug 15, 2010 - Religion - 255 pages
"Karl Barth's rich and commanding thought on the ethics of the gospel calls for theological scholarship of a high order. This splendid collection has it in thirteen steller essays on the ethics of war, democracy, punishment, economics, freedom, and other topics in Barth's thought."--- Gary Dorrien Columbia University
"This authoritative collection is a notable addition to the rediscovery of Barth's ethical thought. The essayists know Barth well, take him seriously as a moral theologian, and offer their readers well-articulated judgments."---John Webster King's College, Aberdeen
In this seminal volume, contemporary theologians revisit the theological ethics of Karl Barth as it bears on such topics as the moral significance of Jesus Christ, the Christian as ethical agent, the just war theory, the relationship between doctrines of the atonement and modern penal justice systems, the virtues and limits of democracy, and the difference between an economy of competition and possession and an economy of grace.
