Karl Barth is perhaps the most significant Protestant theologian of the 20th century. This course gives an introduction to the formation, content, and development of his theology, with a special focus on the following topics: theological knowledge, election, Trinity, the Word of God, the divine perfections, creation and covenant, providence, sin, reconciliation. The course is designed to foster discussion of the primary texts we will be reading, with the class time equally divided between lecture and guided discussion.
