Now this closely reason masterpiece of brilliant insight into the work and attributes of God, creation, Jesus, and the Christian life is available in an economical hardcover set. Barths canon of conviction is evangelical because it is God-centeredstressing Gods encounter with man rather than mans discovery of God; and its object, source, and norm is the transcendent God of the gospel. Church Dogmatics reveals Barths fully developed theology, and his writings continue to instruct and guide preachers, teachers, students, and laypeople worldwide today.Read Less
New. BRAND NEW. 14 volume set. Sewn binding. Cloth over boards. 9233 p. Audience: General/trade. Karl Barth's Church Dogmatics is, arguably, the most important theological publication of the 20th Century. Reacting against staunchly entrenched German Idealism, Barth sought to articulate a Christian theology that took seriously and yet overcame the critique of Christianity brought forth by 19th Century Protestant Liberalism. Most believe he succeeded to a great extent, and in doing so re-established an orthodox theology's ability to speak positively and confidently about faith, reason, and God in Jesus Christ. Since its publication in the United States, the Dogmatics has remained relatively inaccessible to pastors, students, and even many professors due to its cost. That is now changing. Hendrickson Publishers, with its publication of the 14-volume set of the Church Dogmatics, has overcome this obstacle by providing an economic, hardback edition. Hendrickson is reproducing the original 14-volume set edited by T.F. Torrance and G.W. Bromiley, first published more than forty years ago by T&T Clark. The new edition will contain the entire 14-volume set and all its contents as it was originally published by T&T Clark. Barth's extensive notes will also remain, most of which remain in their original languages. The set is now affordable, and accessible to all who wish to read Barth, engage him, and evaluate his theology in their own study. It is an excellent opportunity for those who have had little exposure to Barth, or merely read about him, to become more familiar with him. As a theologian who increasingly influences Protestant's understanding of the Trinity, Christology, Creation, Ecclesiology, the Christian life, ethics, biblical interpretation, and the Christian's role in culture Barth has become required reading for all who take theology seriously. As Calvin's Institutes was the most influential theological masterpiece of the Reformation, there is little doubt that Barth's Dogmatics is emerging as the most eminent attempt to articulate an orthodox theology in the modern period.
