In concluding the series of lectures given while he made his first and only visit to the U.S., Dr. Karl Barth expressed his hope to see a theology of freedom for humanity originating from the U.S. As a respectful response to the expressed hope of Karl Barth, Albert Walsh presents this essay as a pastoral proposal on the subject of freedom from the point of view of the Judeo-Christian tradition. Walsh presents both biblical and theological foundations for a theology of freedom, which he calls graced-freedom, contending that this is that transcendent freedom that God alone confers and sustains as a freedom for humanity.

“In this brief but beautiful exposition of scripture, Fr. Witherup gives readers significant insights into the spiritual depths of Matthew’s Gospel. With a masterful touch he leads those studying the gospel along sound lines of interpretation that will certainly reward all who use this book in conjunction with scripture for personal spiritual enrichment. Readers owe Fr. Witherup a debt of gratitude for bringing his expert interpretive skills to bear on the gospel. They will garner the benefits of serious scholarship without having to struggle with technicalities of sophisticated academics. All students of the Bible will profit greatly from reading this delightful commentary on Matthew.” Dr. Marion L. Soards Professor of New Test. Studies Louisville Presb. Theol. Sem. Author of The Apostle Paul “Ronald Witherup has long been known in the theological academy to be a great scholar and a great Christian.... In this commentary, he expresses in clear and lively language the essential meaning of every passage of Matthew’s Gospel. He does not write as an intellectual (which he is) but as one who loves his Bible and his Lord, revealing to everyday Christians lessons too often reserved for scholars. He takes us from Christmas to Easter, from the Sermon on the Mount to the shocking trial before Pilate, treating every parable, every miracle, every episode in this Gospel story of Jesus in terms of its spiritual message for believers today. A wonderful guide to one of the most engaging, inspiring, and thought-provoking books ever written!” Mark Allan Powell Trinity Lutheran Seminary Author of God With Us: A Pastoral Theology of Matthew

In Spark of Life, a powerful classic from the renowned author of All Quiet on the Western Front, one man’s dream of freedom inspires a valiant resistance against the Nazi war machine. For ten years, 509 has been a political prisoner in a German concentration camp, persevering in the most hellish conditions. Deathly weak, he still has his wits about him and he senses that the end of the war is near. If he and the other living corpses in his barracks can hold on for liberation—or force their own—then their suffering will not have been in vain. Now the SS who run the camp are ratcheting up the terror. But their expectations are jaded and their defenses are down. It is possible that the courageous yet terribly weak prisoners have just enough left in them to resist. And if they die fighting, they will die on their own terms, cheating the Nazis out of their devil’s contract. “The world has a great writer in Erich Maria Remarque. He is a craftsman of unquestionably first rank, a man who can bend language to his will. Whether he writes of men or of inanimate nature, his touch is sensitive, firm, and sure.”—The New York Times Book Review
