New Center for Barth Studies Book Review

Deanna Ferree Womack has reviewed John G. Flett's The Witness of God: The Trinity, Missio Dei, Karl Barth, and the Nature of Christian Community (Eerdmans, 2010), which has been a subject of discussion here at DET. Its a nice, lengthy review, so be sure to check it out. Here is a picture of the man himself at Barth's grave:

Is this Flett? The picture.

He looks a lot like Paul Metzger (the Barth guy at my alma mater, Multnomah). Weird. Long lost Barth brothers ;-).
