Editorial Reviews

'this book on Barth's ethics claims our attention as more than just an exercise in historical theology ... a doctoral thesis, but refined and shortened so as to be accessible to a wider readship ... The author writes sympathetically but also critically, and makes the effort to draw out thewider significance and application of Barth's work at the end of each chapter.'Regent's Review, Autumn 1994
