Not only am I full of admiration for the work that has been put in to develop the resources on this site, but I am also deeply grateful for the way this key text from Karl Barth has been made available with detailed introduction, annotation and critical discussion.

This letter from Barth to Friedrich-Wilhelm Marquardt is an eye-opener to anyone who wants to understand the theology of Israel in the minds of these two great theologians, and an example for all to follow. Read and enjoy! I give the English translation and notes to the letter below – but the introduction is well worth studying to set the context.
