George Hunsinger, a professor of systematic theology at Princeton Seminary and founder in 2006 of the National Religious Campaign Against Torture, has been awarded the Karl Barth Prize by the German Evangelical Church.

We Christians are a people divided by what unites us. We believe that God has, through the body and blood of Jesus Christ, made us one people, but how the Eucharist works to make us one with God and one another has been one of the most divisive points of conflict between Christians, particularly since the Reformation.
