These are some really good lectures and Evangelical Theology is an excellent work. Of course, I would have some significant disagreements with Barth but many don't really surface (but maybe in seed form) in ET. I took a class on Barth at Southern where I was first exposed to these lectures. I must confess that I recorded them from tapes I borrowed from the prof onto CD. I guess I don't have the authorized version.

Forgot to ask - what specifically are you researching with Barth for your THM?

Kevin Cawley

William-- I don't have the "authorized" version either, so I think you're in the clear.

I have PLENTY of disagreements with KB, but I like him because he stretches me-- and is forcing me to learn theology and argue through my disagreements with him (yes, I talk out loud to books written by dead people).

And, like you said, I find few of those disagreements in ET (a great book, in my opinion).

I'm not sure if you're familiar with it, but I'm eager for the forthcoming volume edited by Sung Wook-Chung, entitled Karl Barth & Evangelical Theology: Convergences and Divergences.

I'm dealing with Barth's ecclesiology-- attempting to argue that his theology (in part due to doctrine of universal election) is incapable of sustaining a doctrine of the visible church...

I would LOVE to chat with Mohler for hours about all things KB...
