REVIEWS
Paul Louis Metzger
"This collection of essays and responses by leading interpreters of Karl Barth reveals keen insights into his writing, life, and teaching, as well as foresight concerning his significance for issues facing the church today. The depth, complexities, and vitality of Barth's work come alive in these pages. For the Sake of the World will be welcomed by all students of this great twentieth-century theologian and by those concerned with doing theology in the new millennium."
William C. Placher
"Thirty-five years after Karl Barth's death, it seems that we are just beginning to give his theology the sort of detailed analysis it deserves and richly repays. These essays offer an outstanding model of the kind of work that needs doing. They give readers a deeper understanding not only of Barth but also of how to do theology."
