How Jewish was Karl Barth? With this provocative question David Novak opens this volume that brings nine eminent Jewish and Christian theologians into direct and respectful dialogue on a crucial aspect of Barth's thought and legacy. Highlights of the volume include a personal exchange between Novak and Eberhard Busch; classic essays by Thomas Torrance, C. E. B. Cranfield, and Hans K√ľng; and a concluding reflection by Ellen Charry on ending enmity. These scholars not only make a noteworthy contribution to Barth studies but also demonstrate creative possibilities for building positive Jewish-Christian relations without theological compromise.
