Why am I excited?

Why am I so excited? Why is my heart pounding in my chest? Why are my palms sweaty with anticipation?

The answer should be obvious: I have finally received my copy of Robert Sherman’s new book, The Shift to Modernity: Christ and the Doctrine of Creation in the Theologies of Schleiermacher and Barth (T&T Clark, 2005). Barth’s relationship to Schleiermacher is an immensely fascinating and important topic. There are not nearly enough books that explore this relationship in detail—so I can hardly wait to read this one.

As you know, there are many different ways to enjoy a good book. But in this case, I think I’ll sink into a warm armchair on a cool, quiet evening with a nice glass of Pinot Noir.

Ben, are you willing to offer a chapter by chapter breakdown of the book - or at least detail the table of contents?

Now THAT is a foretaste of heaven!!! Just add a pipe and some Mozart playing softly in the background and you would be touching perfection.

Hi Terry -- okay, I might try to post a short summary or review once I've read the book.
