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 “son-of-man” volume is the volume you want to never end. It is so beneficial to understanding the atonement and the “history-of-Christ”. Again; small portions are recommended. I found this series of short and powerful lessons:
1. Structure, content, and theology of “return-in-exaltation” pp. 1-40
2. Subject, object, and differentiation of “henosis” pp. 40-80
3. Exousia empowerment of teleology of kingdom pp. 90-120
4. Epistemology, secret, and witness of “henosis-history” pp. 120-150
5. Ouranos, self-disclosure, and cosmic dimension of lordship pp. 150-180
6. Direction of sanctification and redemption pp. 250-300
7. Egeiro-unification, altered-situation, and promise pp. 300-340
8. Christ’s triune history, and dokimadzo-ethics pp. 340-380
One thing that becomes clear in this volume is that Barth gives an absolutely powerful articulation of the significance of “resurrection” and “ascension”. These are both dealt with in radically powerful ways. I love this volume. 5 massively large stars by all means.
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.
