This reissue of Emil Brunner's 'Nature and Grace' with Karl Barth's response 'No!' places back into the hands of theological students one of the most important, and well publicized, theological arguments of the 20th century. Here we see the climax of Barth and Brunner's disagreement over the point of contact for the gospel in the consciousness of natural man. Also at stake is the nature of the theological task. Brunner claims that the task of that generation was to find a way back to a legitimate natural theology. Barth responds strongly, arguing that there is no way to knowledge of God by way of human reason. Barth's radical Christocentric redevelopment of Reformation theology left no room for any source of authority aside from the Word of God.

My pastor in Seattle used to refer to this debate regularly. I'd love to see it in Logos.

Voted! This definitely is something worth having in Logos. I see Wipf & Stock have reprinted it, so hopefully it shouldn't be hard to get.

Thanks, Rosie!

Actually, anything from Brunner would be helpful, we have some books about him (but the lack of McGrath' definitive biography brings to mind that Wiley-Blackwell unfortunately is not a publisher Logos currently works with, missing out relevant things) but none written by him...

I actually added a whole bunch of requests for Brunner works on Feedbear last night, including the bio by McGrath even though I knew it was a longshot. See the board sorted by Recent if you want to vote for some of these: https://feedback.faithlife.com/boards/logos-book-requests?sort=created_at
