5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By J. Barrett on March 12, 2013
Format: Paperback
I don't understand "anselm's" incredibly short 3-star review. This edition is very helpful, especially since the introductions and footnotes in each chapter place each essay in its context and therefore facilitates a better reading experience. Marga's translation is very helpful and makes this a great book for both students and scholars. Students will find this to be a good introduction into Barth's theology/writings, and scholars will appreciate Marga's references to the critical edition in German. The rest of my brief review can be found here:[...]

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Aaron T Smith on February 10, 2014
Format: Paperback
Horton's translation (and it is Douglas Horton's translation, which this volume replaces, not "Smith's" as an earlier reviewer has it - Peter Smith was the publisher of the 1978 reprint) has been serviceable since its original appearance more than half-a-century ago. But Marga has done a great service to readers seeking an introduction to Barth. As has been noted, she has contextualized each of these pregnant writings with brief essays explaining relevant historical and theological matters. She also has translated footnotes from the updated Gesamtausgabe ("collected works") edition of the addresses where possible (i.e., where these addresses have appeared in the Gesamtausgabe, as some are slated for forthcoming volumes). That adds further background. Perhaps most significantly, Marga corrects some infelicities in Horton's rendition. Take the very title, for instance: "Das Wort Gottes und die Theologie" is more accurately rendered "The Word of God and Theology," as Marga has it, rather than the misleading "The Word of and the Word of Man." Similarly, "Das Wort Gottes als Aufgabe der Theologie" is better translated "The Word of God as the Task of Theology" than, per Horton, "The Word of God and the Task of the Ministry." I suspect that in a relatively brief amount of time Marga's translation will supplant the long-useful offering by Horton.

Format: Paperback
This translation is not that much better than the old version by Smith. If you already own Smith's it is not worth the money. The older translation also seems to retain some of the "feeling" of Barth's text to whereas this has a more contemporary feel.
