I think Webster is (as of May 25, 2016, was) the best dogmatic theologian alive today. And his middle name is Bainbridge, which is awesome. Contents of this particular volume are as follows:

Seminal stuff here. Reading this you will be witnessing a significant theologian probing and preparing for his attempt at a major multi volume systematic theology. The bits and pieces stand so nicely alone, and are so subtly suggestive of much more along side one another. Webster shows here, that he has learned from Barth (and others) and found his own theological voice, and that we should be listening carefully.

This is a series of essays on dogmatic theology. Webster is a Barthian theologian, and in it comes through strongly in these essays. That said, he is an amazing writer and thinker. His essay on the incarnation is a must-read in this volume. I have never read theological essays that are as probing and convicting as these. His doxological approach helped me get on my knees!
