Description: The most outstanding theological thinker of the
twentieth century is proving to be the most pivotal theological
figure of the twenty-first century as well. It is no wonder some
have referred to Karl Barth as a ""Father"" of the Church. Karl
Barth, widely acknowledged as the most influential theologian of
the modern era, continues to provoke and inspire Christian
theological reflection in a distinct and enduring way. His work has
occasioned appreciation, critique, and rejection, but however one
responds to Barth, one must reckon with him in pursuing the
theological task. This volume draws together scholars whose essays
exhibit work ""after Barth"" in engaging the doctrine of the
Trinity and its related themes. Barth's thought, as evidenced
amongst his most expert commentators, allows for a variety of
interpretations, the details of which are being hammered out on the
pages of academic journals and volumes such as this one. It is this
variety of responses to and interpretations of Barth's theology
that gives such vibrancy to the essays in this volume by seasoned
Barth scholars and voices new to the conversation. Contributors
include: Ivor J. Davidson, Bruce L. McCormack, John C. McDowell,
Paul D. Molnar, Murray A. Rae, and a Foreword by John B. Webster.
Endorsements: ""This exciting new volume is a distinctive and
important addition to Barth studies. The essays are noteworthy for
their interpretative rigor and constructive ambition; they supply a
vivid sense of what it means to think with, after, and beyond Barth
in the present day. Highly recommended."" --Paul Dafydd Jones
Assistant Professor of Western Religious Thought University of
Virginia ""What might it mean to construct a 'post-Barthian'
doctrine of the Trinity? Despite significant points of divergence,
this international panel of theologians agrees: Future trajectories
of Trinitarian theology ignore Karl Barth only to their detriment.
Consequently, this rich collection of constructive essays on the
Trinity in conversation with Barth deserves wide distribution and
careful reading by scholars and students, by Barth's friends and
foes alike "" --David Guretzki Dean of the Seminary and Associate
Professor of Theology Briercrest College and Seminary, Caronport,
Saskatchewan ""If anyone still doubts that Barth's theology served
to re-ignite interest in the doctrine of the Trinity not seen since
the patristic era, he or she needs to read this book. One will
discover that serious consideration of the doctrine of the Trinity
can still hardly afford to go around Barth but can only go through
him. Yet Trinitarian Theology after Barth makes clear that far from
everything being nailed down, Barth's theology is truly theologia
viatorum, theology on the way."" --Richard Burnett Professor of
