This article wishes to examine some defining areas of Karl Barth's theology in the post-World War II period, and to see in what regard his theology may help in the discussion on public theology. As some characteristics may grow from our search, a definite distinction will appear between the specific intention and manner of his theology in and towards public life. A thorough appreciation of the public intention in his theology, as well as critique on the shortcomings towards the manner he proposes to go in and towards public life, will be offered at the end of our examination.
