Abstract

In 1938, Barth expresses support for armed struggle against National Socialist rule. The letter causes great unrest in pacifist circles. Barth responds with a brochure in which he defends his view of war on biblical grounds. War, our enemy and the means we use in the process are human means. They should never be identified with God’s final battle, his enemy and his means. Knowledge of Barth’s choices and his conversation with the pacifists of his day can help us reflect on how we as Christians and as a church relate to the war now raging in Europe.
