Karl Barth (1886-1968) Professor of dogmatic theology at the University of Basel, Switzerland, he is considered by some the greatest Protestant theologian of the twentieth century and possibly the greatest since the Reformation. Among his most famous works are Church Dogmatics and The Epistle to the Romans.
Theological Book Review
"[The Church and the Churches] is Barth at his stinging and uncompromising best, a wake-up call to an ecumenical movement which he believed was too often based on the churches' inner weakness and lack of confidence in Christ."
