Karl Barth was, without doubt, one of the most significant religious thinkers of modern times. His radical affirmation of the revealed truth of Christianity changed the course of Christian theology in the twentieth century and is a source of inspiration for countless believers. Pope Pius XII declared that there had been nothing like Karl Barth`s later thought since Thomas Aquinas. God Here and Now offers a succinct and accessible overview of that thought. In it, Barth outlines his position on the fundamental tenets of Christian belief, from the decision of faith to the authority of the Bible, and from the interpretation of grace to the significance of Jesus Christ. In this way Barth challenges each and every reader to discover what it means to encounter God, here and now. Printed Pages: 168. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 56476

B4, pt. 1, HH1, pt. 2 and AAa1, pt. 3 cancelled. First edition, edited by the martyrologist John Foxe. Foxe had established his reputation as the leading chronicler of the English reformation with his first two editions of Acts and Monuments (Foxe's Book of Martyrs) in 1563 and 1570. In the latter he had promised that he would edit a collection of the works of William Tyndale, John Frith, and Robert Barnes; they would not be popularly published again until the Parker Society series of the mid-nineteenth century. "This book neatly combines two concerns that preoccupied Foxe for the remainder of his life. One of these concerns might be labelled apologetic: it was the desire to produce logical and theological arguments, buttressed by historical examples, which would induce Catholics and Jews to abandon their 'superstitions' and embrace the gospel. In his introduction Foxe also claims that the edition offered spiritual guidance to readers of all ages, advising young readers to study Frith, middle-aged readers Tyndale, and older readers Barnes" (ODNB). As befits the stature of Tyndale as a giant of the English Reformation, over half the book is given over to his writings. The first two woodcuts illustrate the martyrdoms of Tyndale and Barnes, each previously used in the first and second editions of Foxe's Book of Martyrs: "The designs are unusually sophisticated for English work and suggest, particularly in the poses of the figures, the precedent of continental Mannerism" (Lubosky & Ingram). The third woodcut, on the last leaf verso, is an antipapal allegory of Christian justice, first used here, and again in the third, fourth and fifth editions of the Book of Martyrs in 1576, 1583 and 1596 respectively.
