This volume contains papers presented at the Princeton-Kampen Consultation 2005. The theme of the Consultation was The Reality of God and the Reality of Faith with reference to Karl Barth's Church Dogmatics (II/1, 28-31 and IV/1, 63). The contributions offer fresh readings of Karl Barth in dialogue with other theologians and philosophers on the chosen theme.
