How Jewish was Karl Barth? This provocative question by David Novak opens Karl Barth, the Jews, and Judaism—a volume that brings together nine eminent Jewish and Christian theologians reflecting on a crucial aspect of Barth’s thought and legacy. These scholarly essays not only make a noteworthy contribution to Barth studies but also demonstrate creative possibilities for building positive Jewish-Christian relations without theological compromise.
