About the Author

'He undoubtedly is one of the giants in the history of theology.' -Christianity Today

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.

Format: Hardcover
Karl Barth, Church Dogmatics I.ii.: The Doctrine of the Word of God (T & T Clark, 1956)

We are almost 1,250 pages into the monstrosity known as Church Dogmatics before Karl Barth actually addresses the topic of dogmatics. It's frustrating, but it's also kind of brilliant, because after 1,250 pages of setup, assuming you've lasted that far, you're really wondering when Barth is going to get down to brass tacks. Rest assured, he does.

It took me thirteen months, on and off, to bull my way through the nine-hundred-odd pages of the second half of the first volume of Church Dogmatics (and the first two volumes, remember, are just the introduction to the larger work!). Usually I take stock after I've been struggling with a book for twelve months and decide whether or not I'm going to defenestrate it with extreme prejudice. The list of books I've been reading on and off for over a year that I don't do that with is very small (I can count them on one hand). I.ii. is one of those books; the thought of abandoning it never even entered my mind. Why? Because despite Barth being a long-winded guy (to say the least) and some clumsiness in the translation here, and despite (or perhaps because of) my not being a Christian, I find Barth's declamation on how to be a preacher fascinating. As with the first book, I.ii. is a fine history lesson in many ways, as Barth takes innumerable side-jaunts into the thoughts of other contemporary theologians of his time, relates what he's saying to current events, et al. (Like the first volume, I.ii. was written during the early to mid-1930s in Germany; World War II buffs, even those with no interest in theology, will find some very interesting asides.
