Overview

These 18 sermons on the central themes of the Gospel were first published in 1961, with an introductory essay by Dr. John Marsh, Principal of Mansfield College, Oxford. 'Most of these sermons were in fact preached to inmates of Basel Prison, where the great theologian is a visitor. Wisdom, honesty, consideration and reverence shine through these pages' (Guardian). 'Here is evangelical preaching which has the surge and onward movement of a symphony. It should be read aloud, so that the tremendous force of the Scripture words, and the passion of the preacher, may be truly felt. This is power-this is grace' (Life and Work, the Record of the Church of Scotland). 'Has won universal approval for its simplicity, humanity and devotion' (T. H. L. Parker in SPCK View Review, 1965).

Meet 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', 'Humanity of God', 'Evangelical Theology', and 'Church Dogmatics'.
