Karl Barth is arguably the most important theologian in the past centuries. Church Dogmatics, his magnum opus, is the core of Barth's life work. The past decade has witnessed tremendous growth in Barthian studies. Although Church Dogmatics has been available in English for years, there are long untranslated quotations in Latin, Greek and German that are essential for understanding Barth's thought.
The new Study Edition of Church Dogmatics contains English translations of these passages for those of us who are not fluent in the original languages. The original page numbering is preserved for ease and consistency of reference.
This 33 volume project will open Barth's magisterial thinking to new generations of scholars. It is a landmark achievement.
