2010 KBBC: week 1 has begun

The first post and response in the 2010 Karl Barth Blog Conference is now online. The author is Matthew Aragon Bruce, a friend and colleague at Princeton Seminary. His piece engages Barth and Schleiermacher on the scientificity of theology. It is an excellent and highly-informed essay. The response is by none other than Matthias Gockel, known for his very fine book, Barth and Schleiermacher on the Doctrine of Election.

2010 Karl Barth Blog Conference

The 4th annual Karl Barth Blog Conference (KBBC) begins tomorrow. This year’s conference is on the theme, “Karl Barth in Conversation with...” I have had the privilege to assist my good friend and colleague, Travis McMaken, with the planning and organizing of this event—and, trust me, it will indeed be an event in the theo-blogosphere. The topics are wide-ranging and immensely interesting. Many of the pieces will undoubtedly provoke intense discussion and debate. More exciting still is the fact that some of the contributions will be expanded and collected as a book to be published by Wipf & Stock.

See Travis’s introductory post for more information.
