Faith, Search, and Support is a weekly ongoing exploration of major theological works, which meets Sundays at 11:30 am in Classroom 3.
The Faith, Search, and Support Group began a study on Sunday, May 20 on Evangelical Theology: an Introduction by Karl Barth. Barth is one of the preeminent theologians of the twentieth century. His 14-volume Church Dogmatics, belongs right up there in significance with the major works of Augustine, Aquinas, Luther, and Calvin. Fortunately for us, when Barth retired after 40 years of teaching at the University of Basel, he delivered 17 lectures to his colleagues and students to explain the theology to which he had devoted his life. This is what we’ll be reading. The lectures are clear, understandable, and often exciting. The word “evangelical” in the title is a mistranslation of the German word, “evangelisch,” which means “protestant.”
Books are available for $15 either in class or on the side porch after worship. Copies are available for free if needed, just see Marc Labinger. The teaching is done by Jack Crossley, Luke Landers, and John Quiring, all of whom hold doctorates in religion. We welcome new participants!
