Karl Barth on Prayer

Full Product Description

Ashley Cocksworth suggests that Barth not only produces a strong and vibrant theology of prayer but his theology can be understood as a liturgical theology and Barth as a spiritual writer. Cocksworth provides a careful analysis of all the major sections on prayer in Barth's theology as he desires to push Barth in new directions. The book considers Barth's prioritisation of petition in the doctrine of creation of the Church Dogmatics, his mature turn to invocation in the doctrine of reconciliation's ethical drafts and uncovers a distinctive theology of contemplative prayer through an engagement with his rich but neglected theology of the Sabbath. Cocksworth uses Barth's theology of prayer to offer new insights into his understandings of baptism, pneumatology, sin, religion and political theology. The result is a rich engagement with Barth's theology of prayer, a genuine advancement of scholarship on Karl Barth and a constructive contribution to the theology of prayer.

Karl Barth on Prayer by Ashley Cocksworth was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in August 2015. The ISBN for Karl Barth on Prayer is 9780567655608.
