Over the course of his multivolume Church Dogmatics, Karl Barth not only cites thousands of Scripture texts but also offers extensive exegetical discussion of numerous passages. In this book twelve leading theologians and biblical scholars examine Barth's exegesis of particular passages in the Gospels.

How does Barth's practice of theological exegesis play out in his reading of the Gospels? What are the fundamental features of Barth's interpretation of Gospel texts, and to what extent do they enliven theology, biblical studies, and ethics today? Reading the Gospels with Karl Barth explores answers to such questions and offers fresh stimulus for further study and discussion.

“Focusing on Church Dogmatics rather than Barth’s commentaries facilitates an exploration of Barth’s theological exegesis. The chapters are diverse but of consistently high quality and engage the great twentieth-century theologian critically and creatively. It would appeal to those concerned with the use of the Bible in theology and those looking for interesting readings of classic NT texts.”


"A distinguished line-up of 12 contributors—including Jürgen Moltmann and Richard Bauckham—consider Barth’s interpretations of various features of the Gospels, including parables, cry of dereliction and resurrection appearances. The collection is not uncritical and is well coordinated."


"Schnabel demonstrates his mastery of this time period with a combination of archaeological, historical, linguistic, and exegetical explanations. He weaves these together with wonderful clarity, providing readers with the opportunity to see first century CE events from the viewpoints of both Jews and Romans."
