A review of Dustin Resch’s Barth’s Interpretation of the Virgin Birth

Advanced access to my review of Dustin Resch’s book, Barth’s Interpretation of the Virgin Birth: A Sign of Mystery, is now available via the Journal of Theological Studies website.


  1. @Bruce: ‘What first appears like repetition turns out on closer inspection to function rather like repetition in sonata form. It is [Barth’s] method of alluding to themes previously developed while constantly enriching the score with new ideas … The more one reads Barth, the more one senses that his use of repetition is never pointless. Rather, it serves as a principle of organization and development within an ever forward spiraling theological whole’. – George Hunsinger, How to Read Karl Barth, 28.
