What People are saying about this

Clark Pinnock
In this book as in his others recent books, Gary Dorrien has shown himself to be an expert theological sleuth…Showing vast erudition, Dorrien helps us grasp Barth's true and lasting legacy.
Stanley M. Hauerwas
In this wonderful book Dorrien confirms his status not only as one of our fairest and best commentators on modern theology, but also as a theologian in his own right.
