Shelves: theology
This was my first introduction to Karl Barth and I thoroughly enjoyed both his writing and this extremely well put together anthology. This volume covers a wide range of topics giving an overview of Barth's thought not just on theology but also with politics and aesthetics. For anyone who, like me, is looking to begin exploring Barth's work, this is an excellent place to start.

I ascribe to Barth's theology. Excellent read if you want to know more about the greatest theologian of the 20th century.

I only read the first 100 pages, but this book offers a good introduction to the theology of Karl Barth. It also provides a brief overview of his life and theology.
