Explore fundamental issues in Christian theology with five works from Reformed theologian Markus Barth, son of Karl Barth. In Justification, Barth uses a unique narrative format to demonstrate different theologies of justification. Jesus the Jew and The People of God examine the significance of Jesus’ national background and Christianity’s roots in Judaism. In Rediscovering the Lord’s Supper, Barth gives his exegesis on all of the texts from the Gospels and Paul on the Lord’s Supper. Finally, in Israel and the Church Barth asks what a Jew can believe about Jesus while remaining Jewish, and how Christians and Jews can help each other face adversity in the twenty-first century.
Markus Barth’s works provide valuable insights into the heritage of Christianity and its ancient and modern relationship with Judaism, and are valuable resources for those seeking to understand and teach the fundamental Christian theology.
