Church dogmatics; a selection by Karl Barth( )

481 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in 10 languages and held by 8,005 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Karl Barth's monumental work, Church Dogmatics, is recognized as a landmark in Protestant theology--perhaps the most important work of this century. However, the size range of its fourteen volumes has meant that its content and significance may not be so widely known or appreciated as it deserves. In this concise introduction, Helmut Gollwitzer provides a selection of some of the most important passages from Church Dogmatics."--Back cover
The Epistle to the Romans by Karl Barth( Book )

228 editions published between 1919 and 2019 in 11 languages and held by 3,062 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karl Barth's Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans (Der Romerbrief) first appeared in Germany in 1918, and caused an immediate sensation. A second edition, corrected, enlarged, and reconsidered, followed in 1921, and four others by 1933. The familiar terms "Barthian" and "Barthianism" are an indication of the theological ferment started by the author's doctrine, both on the continent and in Britain and America. This remains a fundamental book book for a full understanding of Barthianism. Its thesis as those confronting Paul, were, at base, the same as those confronting the modern Christian preacher and theologian. Barth's book raises the whole Protestant argument anew in its special relation of the truth of the Bible to culture? What is the preacher to preach? When the translation appeared in 1933 Nazism was just coming to power in Germany. Throughout the Nazi period, and World War II and it's aftermath. Karl Barth from his Swiss homeland was a powerful influence in European and American theology, and as a leader of Christian thought. In 1968, at 82, he is universally honored and respected. The translator, the late Sir Edwin Hoskyns, was a Fellow of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge

The humanity of God by Karl Barth( Book )

36 editions published between 1960 and 1999 in 4 languages and held by 1,284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In "The humanity of God", the author lays the cornerstone for his new evangelical theology by stating that the deity of God, rightly understood, includes his humanity. This is the irrefutable good news of God's acceptance of man through Christ. In "Evangelical theology in the 19th century", he examines the theology of liberalism against which he and his fellows reacted. In the last essay, "The gift of freedom", he deals with practical problems of the Christian life. The author finds the basis of evangelical ethics in the overwhelming fact that God has made made free and chosen man to be his child and a partner in his work

Protestant theology in the nineteenth century : its background & history by Karl Barth( Book )

27 editions published between 1972 and 2002 in English and German and held by 946 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Featuring an extensive introduction by Colin E. Gunton that recontextualizes and reintroduces Barth's work for a new generation, this book provides a review of the shapers of modern Protestant thought and practice. Barth offers insightful readings of all the most significant figures of the modern period - Rousseau, Lessing, Kant, Hegel, Schleiermacher, Feuerbach, Ritschl, and others - as well as several lesser-known thinkers. Also included here are Barth's preface to the original 1946 German edition and a translation of his hard-to-find essay "On the Task of a History of Modern Protestant Theology."" "In addition to providing insight into some of the church's seminal theologians, this volume offers an excellent look at Barth himself. In capturing Barth's personal views on doctrine, the church, and intellectual history, the book also provides valuable background reading for those studying Barth's own theology."--BOOK JACKET

The word of God and theology by Karl Barth( )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic volume of Barth's essays was first published in 1924 under the title 'Das Wort Gottes und die Theologie'. In this brand new English edition all the critical apparatus is translated, each chapter including an explanatory passage giving general historical context and details of Barth's own biography. These essays represent the very best of Barth's work. Far from being superceded by the Church Dogmatics, indeed, a thorough understanding of the Church Dogmatics must presuppose a close knowledge of them. The style is vivid, deeply engaged and engaging, often expressionistic (making frequent use of irony and hyperbole). Peter Gay described Weimar culture as a "dance on the edge of a volcano." If so, then it was essays like these that provided the music
