Review by George "Tommy" Givens forthcoming.


How Jewish was Karl Barth? This provocative question by David Novak opens Karl Barth, the Jews, and Judaism—a volume that brings together nine eminent Jewish and Christian theologians reflecting on a crucial aspect of Barth’s thought and legacy. These scholarly essays not only make a noteworthy contribution to Barth studies but also demonstrate creative possibilities for building positive Jewish-Christian relations without theological compromise.
