This comprehensive book surveys the history of Christian universalism from the second to the twenty-first century and offers an interpretation of how and why universalist belief arose.

Encounters with God: An Approach to the Theology of Jonathan Edwards
They may be even more useful where the subject matter has received scant exclusive attention, and McClymond draws provocative analogies with other thinkers and secondary literature, which sug- gests directions for further work. While McClymond's book is a valuable contribution to Edwards scholarship because of its presentation of the breadth of Edwards's spiritual vision, it does not always manage to convey the depth and difficulty of the intellectual challenge that Edwards's work presents. In this respect, the book is better as an introduction and an advancement on the best work on Edwards to date.
The chapter on Edwards's spirituality advances the interesting claim that he diff'ered significantly from his fellow Puritans by conceiving of spirituality as primarily contemplative instead of active and less concerned with the self's development toward God than with a disinterested vision of God's excellence. The chapter also leaves the reader to face the seemingly inconsistent facts that Edwards promoted both an "isolationist" spirituality while he also placed a strong emphasis on the notion of community in his theology not to mention granted a good deal of significance to action in texts such as Religious Afictions , armed only with the comment that this does indeed seem ironic.
Un- doubtedly, these shortcomings are at least partly due to considerations of space and time, and it may be that the book is concerned more with placing Edwards in the history of theology than with establishing and defending the validity of Edwards's positions. The reader is left with a heightened appreciation of the different ways in which one can and perhaps should think theologically.
McClymond is successful in showing how the motif of spiritual perception runs through the various modes of thought that Edwards employs. He is also successful in demonstrating that Edwards's endeavors in each genre reveal an apologetic impulse that is responsive to the intellectual currents of his day, while remaining true to his theological vi- sion. The book lacks a philosophical edge, however-one must bear in mind the hct that it is only an approach to Edwards's theology. However, those who would engage Ed- wards's theology thoroughly will do well to acquaint themselves with McCly-.
Pennsylvania State University Press, When Charlotte von Kirschbaum first heard Karl Barth lecture in , she was twenty-four years old, financially almost destitute, and in poor health. Deeply religious and a voracious reader with a keen interest in theology, she had already devoured Barth's Romerbrief; at the recommendation of her pastor, shortly after it had appeared, and then avidly kept up with Barth's work through the journal Zwischen den Zeiten. At a time when only a tiny fraction of the general population, virtually all male, went on for a university education, she had been trained for a career as a Krankenschwester or Protestant nurse.
It was George Merz, her pastor, who first recognized her intellectual gifts. After guiding her through confirmation in the Lutheran Church, Merz included her in the intellectual circle he had gathered around him in Munich, which included Thomas Mann.
Embodying the Spirit
It was also Merz, by then editor of Zwischen den Zeiten and godfather to one of Barth's children, who had taken her with him to that lecture and who introduced her to Barth afterward. Barth invited them both for a visit to his summer retreat, the Bergli, in the mountains overlooking Lake Zurich. Merz and von Kirschbaum went to the Bergli that summer and returned the next. Von Kirschbaum made a very good impression. She was drawn into the circle oftheological friends who spent their summers at the chalet.
