The Word of God and the Word of Man is a collection of eight addresses Barth gave to Reformed conventions during the first half of the period between the two world wars. At this point, Barth was still the young country preacher he spent his life professing to be, and his youth should be taken into account when comparing the writings in this book with some of his other s: Karl Barth, The Word of God and the Word of Man (Peter Smith, ) It is true that the translation of a work of literature is often as much of an art as the work of literature itself. Having now read three long translations of Karl Barth from three different translators, I can speculate that the above statement is, perhaps, more true of nonfiction being translated from German to 4/5.

In the Word of God and the Mind of Man, Ronald Nash takes on the problem of explaining and justifying the ability of God to communicate, and man to understand, in a forthright argument based on the concept of the by: Man is not solely created in the image of God, God is waiting to be acknowledged and revivified within the very cells, the soul of man. A soul willing to be in alignment or to be guided by divine will which is vibrant and wholesome (holy) is the actual resolution of all other ills and blockages of any and all kinds/5. Before we attempt to answer the question whether the Bible was the divine word of God or a man-made myth (only men wrote the Bible – women were viewed as inferior and unworthy), we should first be clear about which Bible we are talking about. Surprisingly, Christian denominations cannot agree on what constitutes inspired Holy Scripture.

Real men live by faith, are satisfied in God, treasure God’s Word, pray with boldness, love to worship, flee temptation, repent from sin, refuse to compromise, lead with courage, love their wives, shepherd their families, work hard, love their enemies, share the Gospel, love the church, and pursue purity/5(15).
