Review: "Richard Burnett has provided scholar and lay reader alike useful and innovative ways to enter into Karl Barth's theology. Whether as reference book, overview or introduction, this handbook is an important addition to scholarship on Barth for a new generation." --Amy E. Marga, Associate Professor of Systematic Theology, Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota "One of the most valuable resources for studying and teaching the theology of Karl Barth to be published in the last two decades." --Daniel L. Migliore, Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary "We still need to read Barth--and we still need help in doing so. The Westminster Handbook to Karl Barth is a splendid resource for this task. Newcomers will find themselves well-oriented, and even seasoned readers will find themselves stimulated by the first-rate essays in this volume. Read, mark, and enjoy." --Joseph L. Mangina, Professor of Theology, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada "In this highly valuable handbook are collected, like a bunch of flowers, articles on the various topics of Karl Barth's theology. The competent editor Richard Burnett has arranged a helpful approach to the thoughts of the Swiss theologian. This work will surely be used by many for a long time." --Eberhard Busch, Professor Emeritus of Reformed Theology, University of Gottingen "I know of no work that has collected the insight of so many scholars on so many important themes in Barth's theology between two covers and in an accessible format useful for both the beginning student of Barth's theology and more seasoned reader of his work." --Kimlyn J. Bender, Associate Professor of Christian Theology, George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University, Waco, Texas
