Karl Barth’s WWI Sermons

“We may not have a prophet like Isaiah or Jeremiah in our midst, Barth said, but we do have the Bible and the light of the prophetic word shining so brightly from its pages. “There is something wonderful about this ancient book,” Barth told his people.

 “Particularly in these troubled times, yet at all times, we need to go to this source and to drink deeply from it.” He reminded them of a few of its majestic passages: “Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD! LORD, hear my voice!” (Ps. 130:1). “When you hear of wars and rumors of war, do not be alarmed” (Mark 13:7). “I know the plans I have for you . . . plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jer. 29:11).”
