The question that has so far predominated in the debate has been Barths attitude, both theologically and practically, towards the Jews during the period of the Third Reich and the Holocaust itself. How, if at all, did Barths attitudes change in the post-war years? Did Barths own theologising in the aftermath of the Holocaust take that horrendous event into account in his later writings on Israel and the Jews? Mark Lindsay explores such questions through a deep consideration of volume four of Barths Church Dogmatics, the Doctrine of Reconciliation.
