George Hunsinger Awarded the 2010 Karl Barth Prize!

That's right! You heard it here first - George Hunsinger has been named as the recipient of the 2010 Karl Barth Prize.

In the Jury's "Explanatory Statement," Bischop Dr. Hans-Jürgen Abromeit, Greifswald, Director Dr. Hans-Anton Drewes, Basel, and Professor Dr. Christiane Tietz, Mainz, conclude as follows:
The UEK thanks and honors George W. Hunsinger for his exemplary theological thinking, for his political testimony and his ecclesial teaching in the sense of a truly “generous orthodoxy”, a world-oriented interpretation and practice of Church Dogmatics.
Students are undoubtedly entitled to do a little basking in the glow of their doktovater's success. ;-)

UPDATE (6.21.2010) - PTS now as an announcement on its webpage.

I'm truly delighted to hear this wonderful news. Thank you Travis for getting the news fresh off the press!

My warmest Congratulations to Professor George Hunsinger. I shall open my Moet & Chandon that I had kept for a special occasion. I cant think of a more appropriate occasion to have an Aussie party Down Under in honor of my favorite Barth scholar winning this Karl Barth Prize!!
