Written in light of the growing threat of Nazism in Germany, Theological Existence To-Day! calls the Church to remember the critical importance of allowing only the sovereign rule of Scripture in its affairs. Karl Barth presents his thoughts on the situation in regards to the Third Reich and German churches, calling for the freedom of theological thought and opposing the government’s attempt to control the Church. His work offers valuable examination of the attitudes present in German churches at the time, and a window into understanding the church situation at that historic place and time.
About the author
Karl Barth (1886-1968), the Swiss Reformed professor and pastor, was once described by Pope Pius XII as the most important theologian since Thomas Aquinas. As principal author of "The Barmen Declaration," he was the intellectual leader of the German Confessing Church--the Protestant group that resisted the Third Reich. Barth's teaching career spanned nearly five decades. Removed from his post at Bonn by the Nazis in late 1934, Barth moved to Basel where he taught until 1962. Among Barth's many books, sermons, and essays are The Epistle to the Romans, The Humanity of God, Evangelical Theology, and Church Dogmatics.
