If this book is indicative of the series, I'll be reading more of these "for Armchair Theologians" books.
This is a fine introduction to Barth's life and thought. Dr. Franke traces Barth's life and maps out his journey as one of the premier theologians of modern times. Franke's introduction to Church Dogmatics is a very helpful guide to that massive work.
I am a pastor who tries to read broadly. These little concise "Armchair" books have proven to be a welcome half-way point between deep study and reading for entertainment. They take on deep and solemn subjects but are so well written and easily grasped as to give one an evening of truly relaxing and enjoyable reading. You can finish and have had the pleasure of a good book and feel also that you have been "working," by studying theology! A great combination!
I need to pass these books along to the laity of the church and see how easy they are to digest for those without a formal theological education. About this series I say, "Keep them coming!"
