Journal of Lutheran Ethics
“Precise and eminently readable. . . . An exercise in bridge-building, a recommendation of Barth to a broader readership, and a lively and faithful presentation of an under-considered theological alternative in the life of the church.”
The Journal of Religion
"These essays show a generosity of spirit, a breadth of knowledge, and a gentleness in the midst of discrimination and opposition that can only be admired. Theologians of many schools will learn and benefit from this fine, mature work, and look for more."
The Expository Times
"Hunsinger's great strength, besides his knowledge of the Barthian corpus, is the clarity of his writing and his ability to perceive and formulate theological distinctions."
Religious Studies Review
"Those readers familiar with the author's other published work on Barth will not be surprised by the high quality of these essays. . . This book is written with admirable clarity, and some essays could be fruitful in introductory courses on Barth."
"There is no doubt that this is an important book; it repays careful study."
Pro Ecclesia
"In an age when careless readings of other people's work are in vogue, this book offers refreshingly careful interpretations and analyses. Further, as much more than a collection of essays on Karl Barth, it offers a veritable catechism on major themes in Christian theology."
