Karl Barth
Karl Barth was a Swiss Reformed theologian who is most well known for his landmark commentary The Epistle to the Romans, his involvement in the Confessing Church, and authorship of the Barmen Declaration, and especially his unfinished five-volume theological summa the Church Dogmatics. Barth's influence expanded well beyond the academic realm to mainstream culture, leading him to be featured on the cover of Time on 20 April 1962. Like many Protestant theologians of his generation, Barth was educated in a liberal theology influenced by Adolf von Harnack, Friedrich Schleiermacher and others. His pastoral career began in the rural Swiss town of Safenwil, where he was known as the "Red Pastor from Safenwil" There he became increasingly disillusioned with the liberal Christianity in which he had been trained. This led him to write the first edition of his The Epistle to the Romans, in which he resolved to read the New Testament differently.
