This classic volume of Barth's essays was first published in 1924 under the title 'Das Wort Gottes und die Theologie'. The first English edition appeared in 1928 with SCM in the UK and, in 1957, with Harper in the US. It sold a huge number of copies, and was reprinted several times. However, the translation was poor and copies of the book have become scarce. It is not a scholarly edition: there are no footnotes or index. Now there is a new German critical edition with a critical footnote apparatus identifying the sources of texts Barth only alluded to. The proposed new English edition not only targets a general audience, but also Barth scholars internationally whose access to these important materials has been hampered by inadequate mastery of German. All the critical apparatus will be translated, each chapter including an explanatory passage giving general historical context and details of Barth's own biography. An introductory chapter pulls the whole project together.

The style is vivid, deeply engaged and engaging, often expressionistic (making frequent use of irony and hyperbole). Peter Gay described Welmar culture as a 'dance on the edge of a volcano.' If so, then it was essays like these that provided the music.

This is a brand new edition of Karl Barth's seminal essays, first published in 1924. 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 Far from being superceded by the "Church Dogmatics", indeed, a thorough understanding of the "Church Dogmatics" must presuppose a close knowledge of them.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.

Karl Barth

Karl Barth was described by Pope Pius XII as the most important theologian since Thomas Aquinas, the Swiss Pastor and Theologian, and Barth continues to be a major influence on students, scholars and preachers. Barth's theology found its expression mainly through his closely reasoned fourteen part magnum opus, Die Kirchliche Dogmatik. Having taken over 30 years to write, the Church Dogmatics is regarded as one of the most important theological works of all time, and represents the pinnacle of Barth's achievements as a theologian. Some of his other major works include The Epistle to the Romans; Evangelical Theology, Christian Life; Christ and Adam and The Humanity of God.
