About the Author
Karl Barth was described by Pope Pius XII as the most important theologian since Thomas Aquinas, the Swiss Pastor and Theologian, and Barth continues to be a major influence on students, scholars and preachers. Barth's theology found its expression mainly through his closely reasoned fourteen part magnum opus, Die Kirchliche Dogmatik. Having taken over 30 years to write, the Church Dogmatics is regarded as one of the most important theological works of all time, and represents the pinnacle of Barth's achievements as a theologian.

This volume continues Professor Barth’s high-level of profound doctrinal teaching as he addresses the lordship of Christ as “light-of-life”; and Christ’s prophetic office as the TRUE WITNESS to the reality of GOD. It includes section 70 on the “falsehood of man”, in need of “revelatory-light” and section 71 on the “klesis-call-of-Christ”, as that which discloses this “LIGHT”.I must admit that I was extremely impressed with the lessons in section 71; probably because of Barth’s emphasis on “ENCOUNTER”, and his hermeneutic of refusing to corrupt the Gospel by turning it into “abstract-truth”
Again; I strongly recommend taking very short sections at a time, because of the rich depth of truth being taught here. I found these following short and powerful lessons:
1. PRONOUNCEMENT / REVELATION / PHENOMENON 1-34
2. COVENANT / GODFORSAKENNESS / HENOSIS 34-64
3. FALSEHOOD / ANTI-CHRIST / FREEDOM 64-86
4. EVASION / SUBSTITUTION / CORRUPTION 86-106
TRANSITION TO SECTION “71”
5. LIGHT / ELECTION / TELOS 107-127
6. KLESIS AS EVENT / FORM OF KLESIS / ACTUALIZATION AS PHOSTERES 123-147
7. LIBERTY WITHIN TELOS / PRACTICAL RELEVANCE / CHILDREN OF GOD 147-164
8. KOINONIA / TUPOS / TELOS 164-182
9. ETHOS / AGONIDZOMAI / KERYGMA 182-222
10. KEPHALE / SUNERGEIN / LOGOS 222-242
11. AFFLICTION / LATENT-TENSION / OVERCMING APOSTASY 242-258
12. CHRIST-CRUCIFIED / COLLISION OF ALIGNMENTS / CHRIST AS EXAMPLE 258-275
13. LIBERATION / STATE-OF-GRACE / MATTERS-OF-FACT 275-305
This volume gives the reader tremendous teaching on the “call-of-Christ”. I strongly urge any serious follower of Christ and Christian doctrine to delve deeply into this volume. MAGNIFICIENT!!!
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.
