This authoritative book offers challenging yet accessible accounts of the major features of Barth's theological work, especially as it has become available through the publication of his collected works, and interacts with the best of contemporary Barth scholarship. It assesses Barth's significance for contemporary constructive theology, and his place in the history of twentieth-century Christian thought. The Companion both sums up and extends recent renewed interest in Barth's theology, especially in English-speaking theology, and shows him to be once again a major voice in constructive theology.

Reviews

"Useful...rich and insightful..." The IRT Bulletin

"As valuable for its display of trends in recent Barth scholarship as for its rich engagement with the Swiss theologian's thought." Christian Century

"Webster is graced with the ability to summarize Barth's argument without flattening it, a difficult task for Barth interpreters, and to do so in language that is clear and accessible. This makes [the book] valuable for seminary students and for pastors who are interested in getting a foothold into Barth's work. Its price makes the book especially attractive for this purpose....This collection will be a valuable addition to the bookshelves of scholars as well as ministers and priests who read actively." Theology Today

"This book is an excellent resource for the pastor who knows basic systematic theology....A 'must have' book for Barth scholars..." The Princeton Seminary Bulletin
