— King's College, Aberdeen, Scotland
"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."

"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 stellar essays on the ethics of war, democracy, punishment, economics, freedom, and other topics in Barth's thought."
