Product Description

“The treatment is monumental and enormously stimulating. . . . The range of Barth’s reading in the field of theology is colossal, and his summaries of the history of many doctrines and controversies are of fi rst-rate importance. . . . An outstanding achievement.”

INDEX
V Index with Aids for the Preacher (Including short paragraph descriptions of each section; Scripture, name, and subject indices; and weekly sermon ideas with Scriptures for the church year)

Barth’s “canon of conviction” is evangelical because it is God-centered—stressing God’s encounter with man rather than man’s discovery of God; and its object, source, and norm is the transcendent God of the gospel. Church Dogmatics reveals Barth’s fully developed theology, and his writings continue to instruct and guide preachers, teachers, students, congregations, and laypeople worldwide today.
