EPISTLE TO THE PHILIPPIANS by Karl Barth
Karl Barth is known as one of the greatest Christian theologians of modern times. While Barth’s writings are permeated by biblical citations and exegesis, there are only a few examples of Barth’s interpretation of an entire biblical book. The Epistle to the Philippians is one of these. This reprint of Karl Barth’s exposition of the book of Philippians is now made available again. Two new introductory essays by Bruce L. McCormack of Princeton Theological Seminary and Francis B.Watson of the University of Aberdeen examine the significance of Barth’s theological exegesis of Philippians and introduce Barth’s approach to biblical interpretation.
Karl Barth was one of the major theologians of the twentieth century. He is remembered for his voluminous theological writings, especially his Church Dogmatics.
Bruce L. McCormack is Frederick and Margaret L. Weyerhaeuser Professor of Systematic Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary.
Francis B. Watson is Professor of New Testament Exegesis in the Department of Divinity with Religious Studies at King’s College in the University of Aberdeen, Scotland.
