“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.”
One of the most important theological works ever written, Barth’s magnum opus is essential for serious students of Christian doctrine. Now this closely reasoned masterpiece of brilliant insight into the work and attributes of God, creation, Jesus, and the Christian life is available in a handsome hardcover set. The 14 volumes of this omnibus collection include:
THE DOCTRINE OF THE WORD OF GOD
THE DOCTRINE OF GOD
THE DOCTRINE OF CREATION
THE DOCTRINE OF RECONCILIATION
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.
Karl Barth (1886–1968), widely regarded as the greatest theologian of the twentieth century, taught for many years at the University of Basel, Switzerland. He was one of the principle personalities of the Confessing Church in Germany that opposed Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. In addition to the monumental multivolume Church Dogmatics, his numerous writings include Evangelical Theology, The Göttingen Dogmatics: Instruction in the Christian Religion, Protestant Theology in the Nineteenth Century, The Theology of John Calvin, Fifty Prayers, The Epistle to the Romans, and The Epistle to the Philippians.
