Reading the Bible with Karl Barth

May 1, 2017 - May 26, 2017

An Online Class

Instructor: Angela Dienhart Hancock, Associate Professor of Homiletics and Worship, PTS

Dates: May 1-26, 2017

Karl Barth has been viewed with suspicion by Christians on both the right and the left for a number of reasons, but one of them has to do with his approach to the Bible. What is it about Barth’s way with Scripture that makes some uneasy? This course seeks to answer that question by situating Barth in relation to broader traditions of interpretation, exploring his imaginative readings of biblical texts, and considering the fruitfulness of Barth’s approach for interpreting Scripture in Christian communities today.

The class will be self-paced and available for participants to engage with the instruction at their own convenience, i.e., offered asynchronously, no set times that you need to sit in front of your computer.

Register early! Enrollment for this class is limited to 15 students.
