Prayer // Karl Barth with essays by I. John Hesselink, Daniel L. Migliore, and Donald K. McKim.

In this 50th anniversary edition, the book has a short interlude of Barth prayers betwixt two unequal halves–the first half is written by Barth on the Lord’s Prayer with a Reformation (esp. Calvin and Luther) lens and the second half is written by various Barth scholars on Karl Barth on prayer. In short, for Barth, prayer is the Christian’s freedom granted by God’s freedom to be heard by us–what a privilege and honor it is!
