Barth's Theology of Interpretation by Donald Wood
Through his single-minded insistence on the theological priority of the Bible, Karl Barth (1886-1968) helped redefine the history of twentieth-century Christian theology. Barth's Theology of Interpretation sheds new light on Barth's account of what scripture gives and requires, drawing on both familiar texts and recently published archival material to offer a fresh reading of Barth's theological account of the Christian church's relationship to its scriptures. In addition to presenting a fresh picture of Barth's intellectual development, Donald Wood also raises new questions regarding Barth's contribution to contemporary discussions of the theological interpretation of scripture.
