Karl Barth is known as one of the greatest Christian theologians of modern times. While Barth's writings are permeated by biblical citations and exegesis, there are only a few examples of Barth's interpretation of an entire biblical book. This book is one of those. This reprint of Karl Barth's exposition of the book of Philippians is now made available again. Two new introductory essays by Bruce L. McCormack of Princeton Theological Seminary and Francis B. Watson of the University of Aberdeen examine the significance of Barth's theological exegesis of Philippians and introduce Barth's approach to biblical interpretation. Karl Barth was one of the major theologians of the twentieth century. He is remembered for his voluminous theological writings, especially his Church Dogmatics.
