This volume introduces readers to the life and thought of Karl Barth (1886-1968), one of the most important theologians since the Reformation era. Featuring the Armchair series' characteristic whimsical illustrations, Barth for Armchair Theologians surveys Barth's theology as it emerges and culminates in his monumental Church Dogmatics as well as how his theology continues to be interpreted in the present day.
Written by experts but designed for the novice, the Armchair series provides accurate, concise, and witty overviews of some of the most profound moments and theologians in Christian history. These books are essential supplements for first-time encounters with primary texts, lucid refreshers for scholars and clergy, and enjoyable reads for the theologically curious.

Quite simply, it is (in my opinion) intellectually dishonest to not do so and present oneself as an informed theologian; not to mention one is missing a material that is potentially quite beneficial for biblically Christian theology today. For those with even a passing familiarity with Karl Barth, or those who have heard much about him, John Franke's latest book attempts the near impossible. It strives to make readily accessible Barth's complex thoughts, particularly those contained in his magnum opus, the multi-volume Church Dogmatics. I believe that Franke succeeds in this endeavor. Material that is helpful to understanding Barth is presented, and this aids the reader in understanding Franke's summaries of Barth's key writings.
